A consultation is underway into proposals for Hinckley National Rail Freight Interchange.
The consultation is being hosted by Tritax Symmetry, and it launched on Wednesday, 12 January 2022. It will run for eight weeks.
The proposed interchange is large enough that it is a ‘Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project’, which means that any decision will be made by the secretary of state for transport. The Hinckley National Rail Freight Interchange proposals include industrial and storage/distribution units and a rail port with access from Junction 2 of the M69.
The interchange would be built within the boundaries of Blaby District Council and Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council and is located southwest of the village of Elmesthorpe, close to Broughton Astley. Harborough District Council says it may impact parts of the local highway network in the district.

A hard copy of the consultation documents is available to view from 08:45 to 17:00 Monday to Friday in The Symington Building in Market Harborough. View more details here.
