There have been a whole series of plans for services along this stretch of road, none of which have gone ahead. This one would have been at the north-western quadrant of J22, probably accessed from the A49. There would have been a 60-bedroom Sleep Inn lodge.

It was refused because it was located within green belt land and the council argued it wasn't justified. They also didn't like the loss of land and visual intrusion it would create. Railtrack were also concerned that it would prevent their plans to develop a freight terminal.
