I disagree very strongly to this application. It fails on so many grounds. Firstly I believe that there is no practical need for a Rail Freight Terminal and strategically there is a large Rail Freight terminal just a few miles up the M1 at DIRFT. If planning is granted it will have a disastrous effect on 2 villages with increased traffic, noise, light and air pollution and the loss of wildlife habitat. Northampton has very low unemployment and there are very many existing warehouse parks around the town with unsold or unlet warehouses. We do not need more. If good agricultural land is to be built on let it be for houses that are needed not huge empty metal 'sheds'.
