Manchester logistics decision postponed

Manchester logistics decision postponed
Manchester Airport

A decision to approve a 123-acre South Manchester scheme has been postponed.

The Carrington scheme includes around 1m sq ft of warehouse and industrial floorspace, but a decision has been deferred following late concerns on highways and flood issues.

Trafford Council had been expected to approve two planning applications for the scheme on the former Shell Oil site close to Manchester airport. But a meeting late last week was told new information has been received.

The highways report largely approves of the plan and does not recommend any changes to junction 8 of the M60, which may have proved costly to developers. The flood report makes a number of standard recommendations.

The developer is Himor.
