Lincoln have been given the go-ahead to redevelop the Stacey West Stand at LNER Stadium, increasing its capacity to 3,400 seated supporters.
The club’s planning application has been approved with the capacity to be increased from the current 1,944 with the addition of new concourses and function rooms under the stand.
A statement on Lincoln’s website read: “A lengthy consultation process has already been undertaken to understand design and construction options and going forward we will continue to work in more detail with stadium architects and the Safety Advisory Group to assess all seating options available.
“This could include, but is not limited to, rail seating, which if implemented would increase the capacity even further while continuing to ensure that LNER Stadium is an all-seater facility.”
Lincoln chief executive Liam Scully said: “We are all delighted that the planning permission application for the Stacey West Stand project has been granted. We now enter phase two of the process where we will look to partner with grant-giving agencies and commercial partners as part of our fundraising attempts, in order to make this exciting project a real possibility.
“At this stage, we must stress this is not a commitment to undertake the development as this will depend on many factors, however, we enter phase two with positive intention and with full commitment to explore all options to drive the football club forward on and off the field.”
