"There are still a number of hurdles to be overcome as the project will take up to six years to complete in an unhealthy economic climate," said Lichfield MP Michael Fabricant. "This may impede the completion of the building programme. I will continue to monitor the process closely."

The bulk of the funds will be used to construct new accommodation, offices, and training facilities at the site.
