International Rail Freight Terminal approved

Tags: ,

The government has given final approval for a £1bn expansion of the Daventry freight terminal. The owners want to build a new rail freight interchange and warehousing covering 850 acres (345 hectares).

The Department for Transport has granted full development consent for the project, following a public inquiry which finished in June, which means that all related planning applications can now be dealt with solely by Daventry District Council.

The Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (Dirft) III project is the third phase of the transport hub, which began with phase I in 1997. The developers claim the expansion will create up to 8,000 jobs.
