Ross County have been given permission to groundshare with Inverness Caledonian Thistle, should they be promoted to the Scottish Premier League.
The First Division leaders sought approval from the SPL board ahead of a March 31 deadline, by which clubs must prove they have a stadium compliant to host top flight football.
County, who are 14 points clear at the top of the First Division, have put the arrangement in place in case their own plans to upgrade Victoria Park fall through.
Ross County chairman Roy McGregor told BBC Scotland: "The agreement with Caley Thistle to rent their ground is a safety net.
"No-one at Dingwall is taking anything for granted, but plans do have to be in place.
"The work should be finished long before the end of June, but if the worst came to the worst we would like dispensation to do what Caley Thistle themselves once did, playing half the season at their own ground and half ground sharing, in their case at Pittodrie.
"It seems to me a sensible solution with a back-up plan."
