The service area's car park is a base for a local park & share scheme. It is connected by public footpath to Hugh Hill Lane and the wider road network of Thorne, although most of these fields are proposed to be turned into industrial units.

For a long time - long before the service area was built - there has been a plan to build a link road from M18 J5 to the local road network. Work finally started in 2019, with a new roundabout at the entrance to the service area opening in 2020.

Some planning documents called it 'Hatfield North services'. The unusual choice to use parentheses could be an attempt to differentiate from the A1's Doncaster services.

The building at Doncaster (North) uses an atrium design with a large, south-facing, glass frontage and a glass roof running along the middle. This has since been extended forwards over the large open area at the front.

Granada built the site on a 25 year lease, with rent of approximately £1.4m per year. The land is owned by CBRE Global Investors, who paid £21m for it in August 2014.
