Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

My objections to your proposal are:-
A huge area of agricultural land, lovely countryside, and historic villages will be lost while unlet warehouses exist at nearby DIRFT.
While the M1 is already often brought to a standstill, local roads could not cope with any increase, and there is little spare rail capacity.
Labour force could not be filled locally, resulting in an influx of people, so more houses traffic, pollution etc.
Many will lose their homes and jobs. Property here is already difficult to sell. and small businesses will disappear. What happens to these people?
