Nottingham Forest have submitted an application for the redevelopment of the Peter Taylor stand to Rushcliffe Borough Council.
Forest are enjoying a superb season under manager Sabri Lamouchi and currently sit in fourth place in the Championship standing.
Sitting solidly in a play-off place at present, Forest have one game in hand over the top six sides and optimism is high around the club at present.
With things going well on the football pitch this season at the City Ground, the club have decided to push forward with their plans to expand the Peter Taylor stand and create a new three-tier stand which will increase capacity by 10,000.
As well as the redevelopment of the Peter Taylor Stand, Forest are expected to also improve the Trentside area, Brian Clough and Bridgford Stands.
The inclusion of a new club shop, range of hospitality lounges and restaurants, are to be included in the new stand.

The new start of the art structure will see The City Ground become the highest capacity stadium in the East Midlands, reaching 38,000.
To be a Nottingham Forest fan at the moment is certainly something to shout about. Sabri Lamouchi seems destined to stay at the club, they sit in the play-off places and a new ground has now been applied for.
Becoming the highest capacity in the East Midlands is also something to shout about and with a massive gap between themselves and rivals Derby County in the Championship – life could not be better at the City Ground at present.
Promotion is key though, and it will be interesting to see if Nottingham Forest can push on this season to cement their standing in the play off places.
