Railfreight Campaign

The proposal to build a 3.5 million sq ft rail freight interchange in the green belt outside St Albans has united local people in opposition. Despite rejection on a local and national level in 2008, it has returned and hangs over our community.
Anne has been a key part of the STRIFE team, fighting proposals to build a vast rail freight terminal on land scheduled to be converted into a country park. Her work gathering evidence and lending expertise to the group was instrumental in getting the first proposal rejected in 2008, and will hopefully be again.
Anne has spoken out at every stage of the planning process and met with rail groups, residents, Government officials and freight operators to try to prove the proposal is for the wrong location. She has kept more than 1,000 local people in touch with the campaign, and helped to coordinate protests and objections. She has spoken out against the proposal at every opportunity, raising it in Parliament, at demos and at public hearings.
