The National Memorial Arboretum is one step closer to becoming a world-renowned Centre for Remembrance, after proposals were given the go ahead by Lichfield District Council.

The plans, which include the building of a Pavilion as a venue for special events and the creation of a Remembrance and Learning Centre for visitors, were introduced in April 2009.

Work on the site is due to get underway later this year and it is anticipated the Centre will be ready by the Autumn of 2014.
