A visitor centre extension on the green belt has been given the green light.
Kent County Council has approved plans for a timber-framed facility to be built at the Trosley Country Park near Vigo, Wrotham.
In a unanimous vote yesterday, councillors gave the go ahead for an additional visitor's reception office at the park.
The plans were approved despite the site being on protected land as "the proposed development would be built to match the existing structure and tie into the surrounding environment".
At the visitor centre there is also a café, public toilets and a classroom or function room.
Trosley Country Park covers 170 acres of woodland and downland with three walking trials.
It is a popular spot for horse riders, families and cyclists to enjoy a view of the area of outstanding natural beauty.
The park in Waterlow Road also neighbours a 6000-year-old burial ground with megalithic stones, which predates Stonehenge.
