Corley was expected to be a lucrative development, and its operator tried a number of tricks to take advantage of this.

In early 2020, a brand new secure HGV parking area opened in the south-eastern corner of the northbound service area with spaces for 80 HGVs. This earned Welcome Break a Park Mark Safer Parking Scheme award in March 2020 and was the first parking area in Warwickshire to receive this accolade. A condition of planning approval was that it is only allowed to be used on weekdays.

The forecourts here were rebranded from Shell to Welcome Break branding during spring 2020.

8 InstaVolt electric vehicle charging points were installed here on the northbound side in March 2021, with southbound following in April.

During the coronavirus pandemic, North Warwickshire Borough Council took over the Days Inn hotel here to house HGV drivers who test positive for COVID-19. As a result of this, the hotel remains closed and is expected to reopen in summer 2022.
