Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 20 July 2018
From Alison Harvey


i strongly object to this development going ahead. Albeit not an extensive list i have highlighted my reasons for disagreeing with the development below :

The impact of noise on the local environment 24 hours a day with freight & lorry movements taking place during the night and being transferred accross the site.

i was informed that there would be night time lighting at the exhibition .This will impact on the environment

Although there is a road system being adapted and planned across the site , i believe it will have a great impact on local villages of Collingtree , Milton Malsor , Blisworth , Roade to Mention just a few. Inevitably as the traffic further increases more vehicles are using the villages as 'rat runs' .This is already a big problem.

Additional air pollution from increased lorry movements.

The destruction of yet more green field land.
