Brighton have been granted permission to increase the capacity of the American Express Community Stadium.

The Premier League side will add an extra 1,750 seats, taking the stadium's total capacity to 32,500. This will be done in stages, with the capacity first increased to 31,800 for the start of next season.

The club have also been given permission to upgrade areas outside the stadium. New developments include a fan zone with kiosks and toilets, and a new giant screen close to the train station.
