Rushcliffe Borough Council Planning Committee has approved plans for the redevelopment of Nottingham Forest FC’s Main Stand.
The decision is a significant landmark in the journey to redevelop the historic City Ground site and represents the culmination of three years of dedicated work by the club and its advisers.
The club said the development of the site is crucial to maintaining its status in the Premier League.
“The development will also represent the physical manifestation of the desire of the club’s owner Mr Marinakis to leave a historic legacy at the football club.”
The decision opens the door to the club to have detailed discussions with its advisers and partners on how and when the development will be delivered.
“Both sides have shown commitment to get the application through and do the very best for the club, the supporters and Rushcliffe itself,” said Cllr Simon Robinson, leader of Rushcliffe Borough Council.
“We appreciate Nottingham Forest is a very keen partner of the council. They bring a huge amount of business right across the Borough. We’re absolutely delighted that this application has now been passed and we look forward to working with them going forward.”
