DHL Development – many of you will be aware of the DHL development proposed on the land north of the Bell Plantation. The development is extensive and includes a new roundabout access from the A5; internal spine road, creation of development plots and significant landscaping and supporting infrastructure. The planning application can be found here and everyone is able to comment. The Parish Council have objected to the development on the basis of the traffic generated, the impact on the environment, misguided expectations regarding employment and the belief that the development contravenes the Local Plan Policy. Read the full comments here. There is also a Save Towcester Now campaign, here is their first press release.
