I do not consider this is at all necessary in view of capacity at DIRFT and other locations that are more suitable than this largely greenfield site. I do not think the Rail Network people will want this site in this location as a plan to build an additional station for Northampton just north of Milton Malsor was shelved some years ago. The plan for this site would completely alter the pleasant and convenient road that links traffic from part of rural Northamptonshire to the A43 and the A5. Disruption like this is not necessary and the disturbance to local people's lives should this development be created will be intolerable and utterly without benefit to the current local residents whose lives will be disrupted. This country urgently needs a law whereby road users held up by developers working for their own benefit should be paid £1 on the spot for each delayed journey.
