Scheme submitted for public consultation

We are thrilled to announce that our proposals for a new motorway service station on the A1(M) near Catterick has been submitted for public consultation in June 2019.

Located east of junction 52 on the new A1(M), the development would be built in the former quarry at Pallett Hill Farm with Catterick Race course as its backdrop.

Considerate design for a greenfield site

The design for both the proposed buildings and extensive landscaping has been carefully considered to enhance its surroundings whilst minimising the impact on the environment and local neighbourhood.

The challenge on a proposal such as this was to ensure the architecture of the proposed development sat harmoniously within the context of its rural setting with a seamless blend of materials and soft landscaping to reflect the local vernacular for the region of Richmondshire.

Incorporating the undulations

The site is set down below road level and the rolling levels across the site have been incorporated into the design of the buildings and landscaping with a large, continuous, undulating ‘green’ roof connecting the main amenity building and hotel.

Careful consideration has also been given to the range of possible sustainable options that could be incorporated into the scheme including photo voltaic cells, brise soliel, green roofs and balance ponds etc.

Investing in the local economy

Should permission be granted, the plan would see an initial £57m investment by Roadchef in building the site to serve the 50,000 motorists using the A1(M) every day.
