Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 02 December 2018
From Lyn Bird


I strongly object to the planning application known as Rail Central for many reasons but will focus primarily upon local impact upon human health and perceived health inequalities which would be inflicted upon those who live and work on or in proximity to the site.

My concerns extend to physical, physiological and mental health inequalities which will be exacerbated by the pending application if it were allowed to proceed. The loss of homes and the close proximity of the site to dwellings will have a profound impact upon those home-owners.
I require time to review the applicants current submission documents but so far Ashfield Land do not appear to have provided sufficient mitigation against increased air pollution from predicted vehicle movements, or consideration of the impact of this pollutant upon local residents and road users, where air quality is already known to be poor. Similarly, noise and light pollution mitigation has been scant in consultation documentation.

Thank you for the opportunity to object to this application.
