Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 21 December 2018

I object to this application for the following reasons

1. The destruction of the footpath through the farmland between Milton Malsor and Blisworth
2. Increased traffic through the village when there is congestion on the M1 & A43
3. Increased traffic congestion on ALL roads in the locality due to the thousands of additional vehicle movements a day, generated by this Rail Freight Terminal. The area has very low unemployment so the majority of workers for the operation will have to travel some distance to work adding to congestion and air pollution.
4 Increased Air Pollution that will directly affect the health of residents in Milton Malsor
5. Noise created by the 24/7 operation of the rail terminal including railway shunting, the loading and unloading of containers.
6. Light & noise pollution from night time operations.
