Airports operator Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has announced plans to expand its planning team to cope with an increasing workload at Manchester airport.

The group’s property development arm, MAG Property, is working on Airport City — an £800m office, logistics and manufacturing development that will be the focal point of Greater Manchester’s enterprise zone.

MAG Property is leading the 10-15 year project, and is working with developers Argent, and a joint-venture partnership that includes Beijing Construction Engineering Group, Carillion and Greater Manchester Pension Fund.

The company said that although there was a simplified planning process within the zone, it needed new staff to cope with the detailed planning work that is still required.

MAG is also seeking new planning staff to cope with an increasing workload at Stansted airport.
