Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 24 December 2018
From Mr S Bunting

Representation

I strongly object to this proposed Rail Freight Terminal.
The proposal is contrary to the West Northants Joint Core Strategy.
DIRFT is only a few miles away with current space and capacity for expansion for approx 10 years.
Noise pollution and disturbance - bad for humans, bad for wildlife, bad for farm stock.
Light pollution and disturbance - bad for humans, bad for wildlife, bad for farmstock.
Increased Air Pollution - HGV and Vans increase as well as cars, bikes and bicycles.
Increased traffic and Increased traffic congestion. Villages already used as cut throughs when problems on M1, A14, A43.
Loss of local footpaths - particularly between Blisworth and Milton Malsor - would need to walk along inadequate path adjacent to an already unsafe road.
Loss of valuable farmland.
Loss of open valuable countryside - have for wildlife and environment - eco systems.
Loss of open countryside for a not needed site.
Strong objection.
