Following a review of airspace arrangements in the Manchester area, and

consultation with all sections of the aviation community, the CAA has approved

changes to the boundaries of the Manchester Control Zone (CTR).

The changes will be introduced on 8 March 2012 and will

result in a reduction in the size of the Manchester CTR, and changes to the

shapes of the overlying Control Areas. Approach and departure routes serving Manchester Airport will remain unchanged.

Details of the changes will be published in Aeronautical

Information Circular Yellow 03/2012 on 26 January 2011, and will be

incorporated into the UK AIP and 1:500000 Aeronautical Chart ‘Southern England

& Wales’

on 8 March 2012.  ‘Northern England and Northern Ireland’ will be updated

when it is next published on 3 May 2012.

The revisions will also be depicted on 1:250000 Aeronautical

Charts 'Central England and Wales'

and 'England East' when the current editions are replaced in May and June 2013

respectively. 

The CAA’s decision letter, which includes a chart and

co-ordinates of the revised airspace can be found here: http://www.caa.co.uk/docs/7/20111220ManchesterACPDecisionLetter.pdf
