New service station approved

10 August 2010, 13:13

Plans for a new service station on the M5 in Gloucestershire have been approved by Stroud planners.

The £30 million pound scheme will see a facility built between junctions 11a and 12.

The idea is to use local produce for the service station, which will also create over 300 jobs and put £10 million pounds back into the community over 20 years.

The approval came despite 500 objections from campaigners claiming the site was not needed and would have an adverse impact on the environment.
