A REDUNDANT Victorian water tower in Diss could be turned into housing if plans get the green light.
Applicant AWG Land Holdings Ltd is trying for the second time to get its proposals approved for the conversion of the brick tower in Louie's Lane.
It wants to create two masionettes within the tower, which went out of use in 2003, and demolish its surrounding buildings which were once used for water treatment.
In their place would be built one detached home fronting onto Louie's Lane and four semi-detached homes sitting behind the tower.
AWG Land Holdings Ltd submitted a similar application for the site in March last year, which included the same number of dwellings.
But this was rejected and was then dismissed by an independent planning inspector at appeal.

The inspector said the proximity of the proposed new homes was too close to some of the surrounding homes and gardens.
AWG Land Holdings Ltd said within its planning documents that the new application has addressed these concerns.
