The service area is divided between two districts: Selby and Wakefield. The boundary line runs up the middle of the A1.

In January 2019, 23.5 Degrees submitted plans to build a Starbucks Drive Thru in the former southbound hotel car park. This was postponed after Highways England requested more information. The plans were later withdrawn in late 2019.

In March 2020, a second planning application was submitted. This time the plans included the Starbucks Drive Thru and associated parking in the same position as before however it is also planned that the current derelict restaurant building will be demolished to make way for a McDonald's Drive Thru restaurant and associated parking as well as two units (planned to be occupied by Greggs and Subway) within the hotel car park. The Starbucks car park is also planned to include 6 electric vehicle charging points which will be situated in front of the existing hotel building which is expected to remain. Once again, Highways England have postponed this application until further information is provided in regards to how increased traffic to the site will be managed to reduce the impact the site has on the main A1 carriageway.
