A new home for a county's archives has been given planning permission.
The centre is planned for an historic mill near Cambridge rail station
A new Historical Resource and Cultural Centre (HRCC), is to be built on a site near Station Road in Cambridge.
Property group Ashwells submitted plans to turn the Spiller Flour Mill near the rail station into a historical resource and cultural centre.
It will be run by the county council, and house hundreds of documents, books and archaeological artefacts currently housed at shire hall.
Design to be finalised
For the first time history experts will have full access to the county's archives.
Office accommodation for staff who work in the archives, arts, museums and archaeology services of the council will also be provided.
Now planning permission has been granted, contractors can be appointed and the design of the building can be finalised.
The large mill building was constructed in 1894 for the Foster family and was designed by Calder and Kitchen of Hull.
It is considered an important landmark building, as it is a rare industrial building in Cambridge.
