Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

I wish to raise the following points
1 the traffic density on M1 and the related roads from the M1 to Northampton/Roade/etc are already extremely busy. I would like confirmation that all the proposed developments around Northampton have been taken into account when modelling traffic flows e.g Northampton University increase, all warehousing and housing developments in the pipeline or already approved.
2 Pollution : noise, air quality. These already exceed acceptable limits
3 Why bother having a local plan if it is ignored?
4. Why build on good farming land when there is plenty of capacity at Dirft Rail terminal just 16 miles up the road. This cant be in the National Interest or a Strategic requirement
