Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 12 December 2018
From Roy Bunyan


As a regular visitor to Milton Malsor to meet with friends I object to the Rail Central warehouse proposal.

My wife and I are keen walkers and we really enjoy walking the footpaths between the villages around the Milton Malsor and Blisworth area. These footpaths currently run through open countryside with long distance views over farmland, hedgerows and small areas of trees. In addition there is a path alongside the Grand Union Canal. Most of these walks will be destroyed if this development goes ahead because the proposed diversions would see these paths run alongside the railway lines, busy roads and/or have extensive views of warehousing and other industrial buildings. The additional noise and air pollution that would be created would mean that these paths could no longer be used for recreational purposes and would have a negative effect on us, our friends and all the local people who enjoy walking in the open countryside.
