Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 11 December 2018
From Mrs Anthea Meakins


I strongly object to this proposed Rail Central SRFI, on the grounds of the destruction of farmland, ancient trees and local rural amenities. It will render a beautiful area a barren wasteland, that is full of vehicle pollution, light and sound pollution which would drive away local wildlife.

It would also make life intolerable for residents. It would especially be so, for my own health as I suffer from [Redacted] and [Redacted] problems.

Finally this proposed SRFI is contrary to the West Northants Joint Core Strategy. In any case, this is an unnecessary proposal, as the Daventry International Rail Freight Taerminal known as DIRFT is only a short distance away from Milton Malsor.
