Hearts have been given the green light by City of Edinburgh Council to build their new £12 million main stand at Tynecastle.

A planning meeting at the City Chambers formally approved the proposal after submissions from several officials, including the club’s owner Ann Budge.

The plans are subject to certain conditions involving health and safety, which Hearts have vowed to adhere to.

Work on the new stand – which will host 7290 spectators and take overall capacity at Tynecastle to 20,009 – is scheduled to begin next month and end in September 2017.
