I wish to confirm my strong objection to both this and the 'rival' attempt to build a rail freight terminal on a 'green field' site right between two villages. There are also other nearby villages which would be impacted. The fact is the existing facility, some 16 miles away, in Crick is still under utilised and capable of expansion on 'Brown field' land. The nearby M1 junctions (15/15a) are already heavily used and as local employment is extremely high staff would be travelling to site from afar adding to existing congestion and increasing pollution in the area. At the recent hearing, 19th December, QC's from the rival companies spent over an hour at the start of the meeting bickering amongst themselves. Totally unprofessional and an insult to the locals in attendance.
