The redevelopment, which is set to be delivered by Buckingham Group Contracting, will increase the stand capacity from 8,819 to 16,000, taking Anfield’s overall capacity to more than 61,000.
As part of the application, the club has also been awarded permission to hold up to six concerts and major events at the stadium for a period of five years.
Andy Hughes, managing director of Liverpool FC, said: “This is a huge milestone in our journey towards bringing more supporters into Anfield.”
The earliest completion date for the project is the summer of 2023 with the project expected to take 18 months to complete.
Work will involve rerouting the existing Anfield Road around the new development, skirting the edge of Stanley Park, and then building behind the current stand with a view to joining up the old and new structures in the close season.
