The decision on whether to give the go-ahead to plans to build modern flats overlooking Diss Mere that are opposed by heritage watchdogs has been deferred for a second time.
Developers want to demolish an existing garage and two store buildings behind the Happy Palace Chinese restaurant on St Nicholas Street and build three apartments.
A decision on the application had been deferred by South Norfolk Council's development management committee in June for members to carry out a site visit.
The decision was now put off until August 21 to allow the developer time to put forward a plan on how they would manage lorry movements and noise disruption during construction.
The plans two four-bedroom apartments and three-bedroom apartment have met with strong opposition over concerns about its scale and impact on the neighbouring Mere-side community wildlife garden and boardwalk.
