Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 20 December 2018
From Katie Spruels

Representation

I strongly object to this proposal for a number of reasons. The first being the increase in air pollution from the thousand and thousands of cars, vans and lorries that will be using the local road network.
Secondly because of the loss of hundreds and hundreds of acres of agricultural land. We need this precious land to produce more food within our own country. Thirdly because of the loss of natural habitat for the wildlife. The land between Milton Malsor and Blisworth is open countryside, all this would be lost along with species of farmland birds. Finally the loss of ancient footpaths that currently connect Milton Malsor to many local villages. Myself and my family like to walk along these paths and enjoy our beautiful countryside.
