Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Representation

I wish to make more detailed objections and submit, inter alia, photographs supporting my objections at the appropriate time.
My objections are based on two main aspects. The first is that the proposed siting in a beautiful and currently rural part of South Northants is not appropriate. The second objection is that there is no need for a Strategic Rail Infastructure at this proposed location as it is sited only 18 miles from a huge similar development at Crick, namely the Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT)- a development that is moving to is Phase B- with an additional 7.86 million square feet ready for development, with initial infrastructure already in place and all the initial groundwork done. Planning for that is secured. Its location is far superior to the proposal by Rail Central as it is adjacent to Junction 18 of the M1- one junction from the M6/A14 interchange and one junction from the M 45. Upon further representation I will provide details that the current availability of Warehouse space at DIRFT- far exceeds the current demand.
I reside in[redacted]Blisworth a road that already is heavily overused by motor vehicles of all descriptions. My home, along with many other properties directly affected by this application in both Blisworth and Milton is a Grade 2 17th Century property- and such were built without foundations making them very susceptible to heavy vehicles. This proposed development would forever ruin two historical Northamptonshire villages
