The new east stand will have 2,000 seats and executive boxes
Plans for the £4m redevelopment of Fleetwood Town's stadium have been approved by Wyre Borough Council.
Highbury Stadium's new three-tier east stand, off Nelson Road, will include 2,000 seats, executive boxes, offices and a club shop.
Work is due to begin towards the end of the 2009/10 season and take about nine months to complete.
The stadium, designed by Preston-based Frank Whittle Partnership (FWP), could create up to 80 jobs in the town.
It marks the final phase of the Blue Square North League club's project to increase the capacity to 5,000, meeting Football League requirements.
The club has risen rapidly through the non-league ranks and is currently leading the division, aiming for promotion to the Conference - one step below the Football League.
Club chairman Andy Pilley said he was "absolutely delighted" with the decision by council planners.
"It's a project we have worked tirelessly on. It's been time consuming and expensive.
"We can't thank the council enough for their positive backing of something which will be of benefit to the whole community."
