Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

I object because the Roxhill development will ruin the local countryside. I use regularly the beautiful footpaths for running and dogwalking. I am concerned about the sheer levels of daily commuting traffic and personnel in the area. Northampton has such a low unemployment rate anyway, that I feel it will not add the employment value that the developers claim. There is predicted thousands of daily traffic movement increases which I feel will be horrific for the local area. I love living in Milton Malsor, and did not move here to what will effectively be an annex to an industrial site. We are very close to the proposed terminal and the 24/7 nature of noise and light pollution will be unbearable, especially in the summer.
