Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 20 July 2018
From R Glass


I have lived in Collingtree for just over 40 years and in that time the increase in the amount of Traffic, Noise, Air Pollution, Congestion and loss of Countryside to Development, has been considerable, including the number of vehicles travelling through Collingtree, this will only increase substantially with this proposed scheme and I feel this is unacceptable.

The scheme proposed is in direct conflict with the agreed Strategic Plan for West Northamptonshire. In signing off this Plan, the Planning Inspector said " Because of DIRFT 3 and the large site at Junction 16, there is no need for any further major employment sites within the 2029 plan period"

These are the principal reasons for my representation.
