A MULTI-million pound refurbishment could take place at a Huntingdonshire RAF base, if planners give it the go-ahead.

The plans, which have been submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council for consideration, will allow for the transfer of staff from RAF Brampton to RAF Wyton.

Brampton is due to close when the transfer is complete in about five years' time.

If approved, the plans would see the former barrack blocks replaced with an office complex, the erection of new accommodation blocks, a motor transport facility and a training area, including sports pitches.
