Rail Central (Strategic Rail Freight Interchange)

Received 31 December 2018
From Adrian Bottrill

Representation

I strongly object for the following reasons
1. Increased traffic congestion on roads already congested e.g. M1, A5 and A43
2. Increased air pollution by the movement of thousands of vehicles in an area surrounded by residential homes
3. Light and noise pollution effecting many thousands of residents in the villages of Milton and Blisworth and surrounding villages and part of Northampton
4.The proposal is contrary to the West Northants Core Strategy
5.Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal situated at junction 18 ,a short distance away ,has excess capacity and will be expanding for the next ten years .
6. We live in an area of low unemployment - the strategic rail plan was to site these interchanges where there was high unemployment and spread cross the uk not all in the midlands.!
