Trivia and History
A service area was first planned for this site in 1990 when a filling station, restaurant, hotel and car showroom was proposed alongside industrial development spread across 5.86 hectares of land here. These plans were renewed in 1993, 1996, 1999 and 2002 before eventually being scrapped.
Throughout the 1990s, BP were granted planning permission on several variations of plans for a filling station here with one set of plans in 1996 including a restaurant.
From 2006 to 2009, there were 4 different plans to develop the land to the east of the service station for industrial use as proposed back in 1990. In 2020, another plan was submitted for the erection of 4 units and associated parking and delivery areas with access to these being from the main service area access road. These plans were refused in January 2021 on the basis that it would cause significant issues with the neighbouring residential properties.
