consideration given by NR to the positioning of a new signal gantry outside houses in kettering

The request was successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

My property backs onto the Midland mainline in Kettering. A new signal gantry has recently been installed - at Kettering North junction - adjacent Malham drive which now means that trains regularly sit outside 14 dwellings while they wait to proceed northbound. This has resulted in the loss of privacy to these dwellings and also considerable smells from the engines - in essence - we feel we have lost our amenity to the back garden and also privacy as people can now clearly see into my kitchen and lounge as the track is only about 15 metres from the back of my house .

If the gantry had been located approx. 150 metres south it would have been outside an industrial estate and would not have caused the loss of amenity to my back garden and the other residents.

Can you please forward me the documentation which shows how this current location was chosen as I have been advised by the public affairs manager that `significant consideration was given to its location`

Yours faithfully,

Richard Phillips
