Plans have been submitted for a new service station on the A1(M) at the Catterick junction.

As well as shops, restaurants, toilets and a filling station, a 100-bed hotel and drive thru Costa and McDoanlds restaurants are proposed.

The development at Pallett Hill Farm would also feature charging points for electric vehicles, and an “amenity lake”.

Parking for 292 cars, with 15 disabled spaces, is proposed.

There will also be 40 HGV spaces along with one for abnormal roads, 12 coach spaces, 12 caravan spaces and ten
motorcycle spaces.

More than 7,000 trees and shrubs would be planted as part of the scheme.

A tourism information centre are planned within the site, as well as a shop selling local produce.

The plans have been submitted to Richmondshire District Council by Roadchef Motorways Ltd.

The company says the scheme will involve a £57 million initial investment which they say will contribute over £1 million per year to Richmondshire in business rates.

It adds that the development will create more than 300 permanent jobs, as well as numerous jobs during the construction phase.

The submission follows a public consultation exercise carried out earlier this year.

    Put up a parking lot’ (Joni Mitchell)

  2. Please everyone, if you do not think this is a good idea, then leave a response on the planning portal – it doesn’t have to be pages long, just object.

  3. This,together with what’s planned at Scotch Corner? Surely not necessary! Talk about overkill! Treat the same as drugs- just say no!
