Manchester Airports Group Submits Latest Plans

Manchester Airports Group, the brains behind the millions of pounds of new investment going into developments around Manchester Airport, has submitted its latest plans for the upcoming Enterprise Zone.

A £100 million World Logistics Hub is the latest idea to be put forward for consideration.

If given the go-ahead it will create up to 1.4 million square feet of new space and approximately 1,800 new jobs outside of those created by construction.

To date, a total of more than 4 million square feet of space for businesses has been planned for the area, encouraging manufacturers, logistics firms, retail and leisure groups, hotel chains and international businesses to set up in 150 acres of Grade A office space and commercial outlets.

ΓÇ£This scheme will create a sustainable commercial product of international significance that will provide high quality and well-connected logistics facilities with access to the global marketplace and a population of over 24m people within a two-hour drive time,ΓÇ¥ says Airport City Director, John Atkins.

ΓÇ£This connectivity will create an exceptional opportunity to improve international trade, cut transit times and drive more efficient, sustainable supply chains whilst supporting the local community, increasing employment opportunities and stimulating economic activity in the North West.ΓÇ¥

The southerly-located Enterprise Zone was given the green light last March. With the potential inclusion of the World Logistics Hub, interest is again peaked in this regeneration area and what it means for the future of business in the Manchester area.

By the time of full completion in approximately 15 yearsΓÇÖ time, Manchester Airport Group expects the following to have happened:

ΓÇó 20,000 new jobs created

ΓÇó Doubled passenger capacity

ΓÇó Carbon-neutral airport

ΓÇó International business presence
