Plans for a new motorway service station on the M6 are to be submitted to Rugby Borough Council in the coming months.

The proposal is being made by Moto Hospitality Ltd and brings with it the prospect of 215 permanent jobs.

If approved by planning officers, the services will be situated at Junction 1 on the north side of the motorway near Churchover.

Mark Franks, Moto’s property director, said: “This section of the M6, being so close to the M1 junction, forms a vital part of the motorway network but is not well served by rest stops for drivers.

“As well as providing that much-needed facility, our plans will bring many new jobs as well as helping to secure investment in the local economy.”

Moto say the planning application is set to be submitted to Rugby Borough Council by the end of the year.
