Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 27 December 2018
From Sarah Glover


I object to this planning application and have detailed my concerns below:

1. What will be the true visual impact of 8 million Sq m of 18 high warehouses?

2. Where will the 8,000 workers come from and more importantly how will they get to work? There is already a lot of work traffic that comes through the village and I think any more would be untenable.

3. If the M1 or A43 are blocked or congested, where will the HGVs be directed to?

4. Why has a huge industrial site been planned within such close proximity to villages?

5. What will be the impact of noise and pollution from a 24 hour operation be on the local environment and residents? Have you even considered this?
