A public consultation on the proposed Oxfordshire Strategic Rail Freight Interchange begins today. The proposals include a new rail freight interchange and 6.5 million sq. ft. of warehousing on the side of the Chiltern Mainline, between Ardley and Middleton Stoney.
Oxfordshire Railfreight Limited are holding four public exhibitions on their plans this month in Ardley Village Hall, Heyford Park Chapel and Upper Heyford Village Hall, as well as two webinar sessions. This first consultation runs until Saturday 4 July.
I cannot see that this is the right location for such a development, but am continuing to engage with the developers to better understand the mitigation measures being proposed. I would urge everybody affected by the proposals to respond to this consultation.
