MULTI-million pound plans to transform Chichester’s world-famous Festival Theatre have won unanimous approval.

The scheme will involve the demolition of all the post-1962 extensions while the original hexagonal auditorium and foyer will undergo a big refurbishment.

The plans were given the green light by Chichester District Council’s planning committee.

A major fundraising drive is now planned, with Arts Council support expected after financial backing was promised by both the county and district authorities.
