Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 27 December 2018
From Nicholas Nelson


I am a regular visitor to the area where this development is proposed.
At present the the villages nearby are quiet and peaceful, with a good community atmosphere.
All this would be destroyed by this development.
The lives of many people living nearby would be severely affected.
This development is totally unsuited to the area - there must be a more suitable industrial or brownfield area that would be more suitable, instead of ruining some countryside.

I also attend the world famous motocross race that takes place here every year - the oldest such race in the world. It would be left without a venue by this development, and no suitable alternative has been offered.
