A DRIVE-thru coffee shop has been approved for Woodall’s motorway service station.

The unit on the southbound side of the M1 facility was granted planning permission by Rotherham Council.

The site is within the greenbelt but exceptions are made for developments which do not increase the impact on the countryside.

The development comprises a cafe, external terrace, drive-thru lane and landscaping.

An RMBC spokesperson said that the decision was based on the fact that the services is a previously developed and permanent facility on the site, between junctions 30 and 31 of the motorway.

They added: “The introduction of the coffee shop would be on land which is wholly contained within the motorway service area, and therefore would be considered to be limited infilling of buildings and hardstanding’s within the previously developed site area.

“It is located on a grassed land parcel however it would not encroach onto an area which is outside of the developed area.”
