Welcome

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit our second virtual public exhibition.

DHL is presenting updated proposals for a new logistics hub at the Land to the North of Bell Plantation on northern edge of Towcester, which responds to the feedback received during the initial consultation period in April 2021, particularly around design, landscaping and highways. For more details, please view our virtual exhibition.
