Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I wish to object to the proposed development of the Northampton Gateway.

It is my opinion that we should be trying to encourage more creative localised solutions to our consumer habits and that such freight interchanges are a short-term easy option which do not address our habits and hence fuel the long-term negative environmental impact.

Consumers need educating and alternative options or we will not only lose our high streets as we have seen this generation but soon we will also lose local economies which are critical to long-term success and sustainability for our children.
