The Planning Inspectorate is holding a series of hearings at the Collingtree Hilton this week as part of its examination into the Northampton Gateway strategic rail freight interchange proposal.
Tuesday 12th March: Issue Specific Hearing 4 on cumulative and interaction issues between Northampton Gateway and Rail Central
Thursday 14th March: the second Open Floor Hearing
As my parliamentary duties have prevented my attendance at these meetings, I asked my Parliamentary Assistant, Tommy Gilchrist, to attend ISH4 today on my behalf and read out a statement.
As ever, please do not hesitate to contact me directly if you have any specific concerns or questions about Northampton Gateway or any other issue.
