Liverpool have won planning permission to add an additional 8,500 seats to the Main Stand at Anfield - increasing the capacity to around 54,000.
It emerged last week that the club's proposals to expand their stadium had been recommended for approval by Liverpool council planners.
A vote was taken on the scheme on Tuesday after elected members of the planning committee visited Anfield, with the Reds being given the green light to proceed with phase one of the project - the extension of the Main Stand.
In phase two, the Anfield Road stand would be increased, with the project as a whole taking the capacity from around 45,000 to around 58,800.
The resolution from members of Liverpool City Council's Planning Committee to grant planning permission, subject to conditions and legal agreement, was unanimous.
Construction work on the proposed Main Stand - during which matches will continue to be played at Anfield - is expected to begin early next year and be complete in time for the 2016-17 season.

Fifa's medical committee have suggested that players, team doctors, coaches, referees and officials should take undergo an education programme on the dangers of concussion and how to recognise it.
Football's governing body have been looking to improve the protocol on concussion and high-profile incidents at the World Cup have forced a rethink.
A Fifa statement read: "The incidents at the World Cup have shown that the role of team doctors needs to be reinforced in order to ensure the correct management of potential cases of concussion in the heat of the competition."
FIFA's medical committee have put together a proposal that would allow a referee to stop a football match for up to three minutes to deal with a suspected concussion.
The proposal will be made to the FIFA executive committee and would see team doctors treat the player on the pitch.
The referee would then only let the injured player continue with the authorisation of the team doctor, who will have the final decision.
The issue of concussions in football has long been debated and recently came into the spotlight again, during the World Cup Final when German player Christoph Kramer was concussed but initially played on before being substituted.
The double Grand Slam winner said he did not regret giving his opinion, but was 'disappointed' at the way he went about it.Read the full story ›
