Councillors have granted planning permission for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service's ambitious new safety and lifeskills centre at Lymm near Warrington.
The decision by Warrington Borough Council means that work on the £3.8m facility is likely to commence in January 2015. It is due to open its doors to visitors in the summer of 2016.
The centre, with its four immersive learning zones, will be housed in a striking circular building that it will share with a wholetime fire station for the communities of Lymm and the surrounding area.
