Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 30 November 2018
From Ian Fraser


I oppose the application as an interested party on the following grounds:

The business would provide noise pollution and traffic congestion around my property and to every route out of my estate.

It would destroy the landscape, local villages and peacefulness of local villages, parks and countryside.

House prices, including my own, will decline as the accessibility, noise and aesthetic appeal of the area will diminish - this has already started to happen with the planning application made public.

There is no urgent need for such a project; especially in this area.
