Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 04 December 2018
From Mrs Pauline Mellors


L strongly object to this proposal for an SFRI on land in open countryside between Milton Malsor and Blisworth, as it is contrary to the West Northants Joint Core Strategy.

Having this SRFI squeezed ln between the two villages, both conservation areas, would be absolutely devastating for residents..I am a pensioner of 85 and have lived in the village for 51 years. I am very concerned that the sir pollution generated by the thousands of additional traffic movements per day, will have a serious impact on my health. The harm caused by diesel particulates is a national issue.

In any case there is no need for this SRFI as there is already a Rail Freight Terminal nearby on junction 18 on the M1 known as DIRFT
