Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 14 December 2018
From Faith Fehr


I have lived in Blisworth for fifteen years. I raised my son here. I choose to live in a village because I love village life and appreciate the surrounding countryside, the beautiful country walks, seeing wildlife for whom that countryside is home, breathing clean air and a level of tranquillity absent from town life.

Our villages and beautiful countryside is constantly under threat from a relentless tide of proposed developments, once granted the loss of that beautiful countryside and wildlife is lost forever.

Too much of our precious countryside has been lost already. When will common sense prevail, such outrageous developments should be instantly thrown out. Brown field sites should be the only acceptable option, and the genuine requirement of any development proposal scrutinized.

I do wonder why it is considered acceptable to come into someone else's backyard, destroy and build, with no regard for those who's home this is.
