Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

I oppose and strongly object to this development for the following reasons.
It will completely change the rural nature of the footpaths it covers, which I walk every day. I walk to from Milton Malsor to Blisworth and to the Grand Union Canal, all the footpaths to Blisworth will be destroyed or unacceptably diverted, one of the two footpaths leading to the canal from Milton Malsor will be similarly affected.
Increased noise, light pollution and increased road traffic will have an unacceptable negative impact on quality of life in all the surrounding villages.
Loss of good quality arable farmland, being covered in concrete and industrial buildings is wrong and is clearly bad for the local environment.
