Northampton Gateway Rail Freight Interchange

Received 21 July 2018
From Mark Browning


I wish to object to the proposals. My main objections are:

- we do not need this development with development existing and planned at Dirft

- the development will develop land west of m1 and set a presedent for further development in this area and beyond , especially associated with the bypass at Roade. It will negatively change the character of land and landscape west of the M1

- the proposed bypass at Roade is only required because of this development. The bypass will have significant adverse environmental impacts on land and the landscape around Roade including the important heritage centre at Stoke Bruene. Other negative environmental impacts will be from noise and air pollution (from increased Larry movements) associated with the highway.

The cumulative environmental and social impacts of this and other developmet (recent and Planned) in this locality /area are currently inadequate.
