A landowner has resubmitted plans for housing on a former lorry park at the entrance of Diss.
A scheme for 40 flats at a redundant transport depot in Victoria Road was refused by district councillors earlier this year because it fell within a flood risk zone.
Lexham Property Management has now submitted an altered application for the site near the river Waveney for 38 flats and maisonettes.
The outline proposals, which include 11 affordable homes, come after the owner amended its plans for the development to fall outside the medium risk flood zone.

Agent Anthony Pettifer said the development would make use of a brownfield site on land bordered by Victoria Road, Stuston Road, and the river Waveney.
In a letter to South Norfolk Council, he said the area had not been used as a lorry park for many years and the flats development would generate less traffic than a previous car hire centre. He added that a previous objection that the entrance was at an accident black spot was a 'complete fabrication.'
