NEW PLANS have been unveiled for a new motorway service area on the edge of Rotherham.
Applegreen plc has announced details of a proposed new motorway service area at junction 33 of the M1 at Catcliffe and intends to present the project as a planning application later this year.
The company said its proposal would create some 300 new jobs for surrounding communities and make good use of a vacant site on either side of the M1, which already has planning permission for two hotels and a petrol filling station.
Rotherham motorway service area could create 300 jobs
Applegreen plc, a major petrol forecourt retailer in the Republic of Ireland with a significant and growing presence in the UK, has committed to bring up to 300 new jobs to Rotherham as plans come forward for a new motorway service area (MSA).
Rothbiz revealed first that landowners and developers believe that their site at Junction 33 of the M1 at Catcliffe in Rotherham is preferable to the site at Junction 35 at Smithy Wood in Sheffield where a long-running planning battle continues.
Applegreen said that its proposal will create some 300 new jobs and make good use of a vacant site on either side of the M1. The site, which is screened by a natural embankment from local communities, already has planning permission for two hotels and a petrol filling station.
