PLANS to develop a £1 million visitor centre at Conisbrough Castle have been given the go-ahead.

Members of Doncaster Council planning committee voted this afternoon (Tuesday) to back the plans, which will see extensions built on to the Victorian Castle Lodge building on the site.

The existing visitor centre, which was designed in the 1980s to look like medieval tents, is to be demolished under the plans which are financed by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
