I oppose this development on the grounds that it will have a detrimental impact to the local environment destroying both natural wildlife habitat and productive farmland. I also question the stragtegic need for such a development and whether the actual rail freight capacity would be used at all or whether it is just a means to access more road infrastructure causing more traffic congestion and polution. Lastly I believe the development would negatively impact the quality of life of the local residents.
