ManchesterΓÇÖs Airport City Set for Take Off

Manchester City Council has published plans for a new 287 acre Enterprise Zone located within the Manchester Airport vicinity, with the report labelling the aptly named Airport City as “a very significant opportunity for Manchester and the city region”.

As one of the 21 national chosen zones in the March budget, it is anticipated businesses will be attracted to the region with potentially 350 companies delivering 21,000 jobs in the long term. This could prove a major boost for the Greater Manchester area with around ┬ú514m being added to the region’s economy.

Manchester council chief executive, Sir Howard Bernstein headed up the report describing its main focus will be “to attract business that would not otherwise locate in the region and which demands the levels of connectivity and business synergy associated with a location in close proximity to a major international airport”.

The zone, near to Manchester’s new Metro-link extension will be formed around Wythenshawe Town Centre and the hospital forming “advanced manufacturing, health and biotech business” along with “office and logistics operations”.
