A company determined to build a service station near Chalfont St Peter has unveiled plans for a new multi-million pound site on the M25 in a new location.
Controversy has surrounded previous plans to build Chiltern Chalfont Services, which Chalfont St Peter Parish Council (CSPPC) and residents campaigned against and was rejected on appeal last year.
Now, Extra Motorway Service (EMS) Station Group have revealed plans to build services on the Eastern side of the M25 between junction 16 and 17.
The plans are yet to be submitted to Buckinghamshire Council, but a consultation process is underway with a website has been created to gather public opinion on the Chiltern Chalfont Services proposals.
A statement on the site states: “Extra have previously proposed a MSA on the west side of the M25 between junctions 16 & 17. Following a recent public inquiry, Extra have considered the issues raised by the Planning Inspector and sought ways to address them. As a result of this, the main service area is now proposed to the east of the M25 and significant landscaping will be provided as part of the proposal.”
EMS claims there is a “significant public safety need” arising from the lack of motorway services in the area, which is not addressing the issue of driver tiredness.
The plans for the new £90 million services will create hundreds of jobs and include a petrol station, HGV parking, and facilities building.
Extra Motorway Service Area Group have been contacted for comment.
