The site includes extensive landscaping along with electrical vehicle charging stations, a wildflower seeded roof and capacity to switch to bio-fuel pumps. It also features a famous onsite farm shop, which is stocked with local produce, and replaces the more traditional fast food outlets normally found at motorway service stations.
The new Northbound and Southbound Services sit between junctions 11a and 12 of the M5 and has been dubbed ‘Britain’s greenest motorway services’.
The main building, which has been designed with the aim to achieve BREEAM Excellent rating, is constructed with timber and local stone and features an arched grass covered roof.
This has become an exemplar development that sets a new standard for service stations.
