I most strongly object to the Ashfield land/Gazeley proposed rail freight interchange for the following reasons:-
1) I am [redacted] and the increased air pollution from the many thousands of vehicles accessing this site is of serious concern to both myself and the other residents in Milton and Blisworth, it could seriously effect our health .
2) Light and noise pollution from 24 hour operation. It will cause distress to the residents of Milton, Blisworth, Collingtree and Roade, because sound travels it will impact on Gayton and residents on the southern side of Northampton. This will seriously impact on many thousands of people.
3) This proposal goes against the West Northants Joint Core Strategy
4) The Daventry International rail freight terminal is situated within a short distance; it will be expanding for the next ten years.
5) M1 and A5 are already effected by the above (4)
