Roxhill Developments in Connection with the Prospect of a Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (SRFI)

To All Residents/Parishioners

Proposed Development by Roxhills – Junction 15

As you may already be aware, there has been a proposed development of a major industrial site on land adjoining Collingtree and Junction 15.

The developers Roxhills have proposed a 5 million sq. ft. warehouse complex and rail link as an alternative to the ‘Rail Central’ scheme already proposed by Ashfield that has raised serious concerns for the likes of Blisworth and Milton Malsor.

At the Collingtree Parish Council meeting on Wednesday 3rd August 2016 (a meeting that was well attended by residents) it was decided that one of the measures we could take as a community was to follow the example set by Milton/Blisworth by forming a Sub Committee to work alongside the Parish Council to ensure the best outcome for Collingtree Residents and Parishioners.

A letter is being sent to all residents in the first instance to find out if anyone would any interested in joining the Sub Committee? Any interested parties are advised to contact the Parish Clerk by email at collingtreeparishcouncil@gmail.com 

The Parish Council will then arrange the formation of the Sub Committee as soon as possible. Please give as much support to this cause as possible as the impact on our village will be immense.

Full information on the proposals can be viewed on the link below :
