Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 14 December 2018
From Nicholas Turner


I wish to strongly object to this application. The proposed development is unacceptable, in scale, size and proximity to my house. Also, there is no need for such a development; there is already adequate unused capacity in similar sites within this area of the country.

The developer(s) is not really interested in providing a facility for a rail terminal; it only really wants to undertake 'speculative' warehousing and has no interest in the detrimental effect it would have on residents. Also, it's proposals for screening, noise mitigation/reduction and floodlighting are inadequate; the warehouses would be too close. They would destroy the character of my village, in which I have resided all my life.
