A new children's hospice for Norfolk is a step closer after a planning application for the new purpose-built hospice was approved.
The East Anglia Children's Hospice or EACH as it is also known provides support and care for life-threatened children, young people and their families.
Now if their fund-raising campaign is successful, the new hospice will be built on a 5 acre woodland plot in Framingham Earl and will replace the charity's current facility in Quidenham in the south of the county.
The charity also runs hospices in Milton, Cambridgeshire and the Treehouse in Suffolk. Both of which are better equipped and designed to care for children and young people.
A new Norfolk Hospice will meet the increasing demands for the charity's services.
Graham Butland, EACH Chief Executive, said. "We're absolutely delighted to have the application approved so our vision of a purpose-built children's hospice for Norfolk can be realised."
