A new motorway service station could be built on green belt land near junction 16 of the M25.

A proposal has been put forward by Extra Motorway Services – which also runs the M40 Beaconsfield service station – for a new site between junction 16 for the M40 and junction 17 for Maple Cross.

The motorway service operators will host a public meeting and “engagement workshop” at Chalfont St Peter Community Centre from 9.45am, on October 23.

This latest proposal follows hard upon rekindled plans by rival company Moto to build a similar site at junction 20, Kings Langley.

Moto’s initial proposal includes a 100-bed hotel, a 1,000-space car park and shops and other facilities. A planning application is likely by the end of the year.

It is not yet known what Extra intends to build at the site near junction 16.

Extra Motorway Services chief executive officer Andrew Long will lead the public meeting on October 23 to discuss why the site was selected and “constraints and opportunities”.

The workshop will focus on how to raise awareness of the consultation in the wider community.
