Plans to build a petrol station, convenience store and drive-thru restaurant at a major warehouse and logistics development in Manchester have been granted planning consent.

Construction by Icon Industrial at its flagship scheme Icon Manchester Airport could begin as early as this month.

The BP filling station, M&S Simply Food convenience store and drive-thru Costa Coffee will provide an ancillary facility for existing and future occupiers of the £100m employment park.

Icon Manchester Airport has outline planning consent for about 1m sq ft of logistics/warehouse space on the 45-acre site.

Icon Industrial is a joint venture formed by Stoford Developments and TPG Real Estate. Angus Huntley, development manager at Stoford, said: "This development will provide important on-site amenities... and can only make it even more attractive to occupiers. The connectivity it offers future occupiers makes it a hugely significant site in what is already a rapidly expanding logistics area at Icon Manchester Airport."
