Plans for new coffee shop on M1 motorway services near Rotherham
and live on Freeview channel 276
Welcome Break services hopes to build the new coffee shop at Woodall service station between junctions 30 and 31, on the southbound side.
If approved by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council’s planners, it will be constructed at a site which is currently a grassed picnic area, and access from the motorway will remain as they are.
Documents add: “The proposed development aims to bring jobs, amenity, and access which will represent a positive contribution to the local area.
“Motorists entering this part of the site will have the option to either park up and visit the services or stay in their car and use the drive-through facility.
“A new paved seating area is proposed, for the use of all patrons of the motorway services. A landscape buffer has been indicated around seatingarea and around the drive thru lane to master levels and soften the boundary.
“Pedestrian access from the existing services into the site is very clearly marked and provides safe access to all customers.
“Three trees will need to be removed to accommodate the development and these are proposed to be replaced with five new trees. A grassed picnicarea has also been shown on the proposed plan.
“The proposal would be of valuable benefit to road safety of the motorist through an enhancement of roadside facilities available at Woodall MSA.”
