MANCHESTER: Planners are expected to approve proposals for a £100m 'World Logistics Hub' at Manchester Airport. Councillors will decide on Thursday whether to approve the plans for a 1.4m sq ft complex.
Town hall planning officials are recommending approval of the 88.6-acre site at Oak Farm, south of junction 6 of the M56, next to the A538 Wilmslow Road. Airport City will provide up to five million square feet of new business space over the nextÊ 15 years, including grade A office space, hotel and leisure uses, retail, manufacturing and logistics accommodation. Manchester Airports Group said it hoped that construction could begin before the end of the year. ends 110 words
