A developer has submitted plans for a flats development on another former transport depot at the entrance to Diss.
Lexham Property Management wants to build 40 new dwellings on brownfield land off Victoria Road.
The application comes after another developer, Persimmon Homes, is set to submit revised proposals for 50 apartments at the redundant Bartrum's haulage depot on the same road.
The latest plans by Lexham Property Management relates to a 1.8acre area of concrete bordered by Victoria Road, Stuston Road, and the river Waveney.
The outline application to South Norfolk Council includes proposals for 28 two-bedroom flats and 12 affordable one and two-bed flats up to three storeys high at the redundant transport depot.
Agent Anthony Pettifer, of Pelorus planning and property consultants, said the location was an 'important gateway site' in Diss.

In a letter to the district council, he added that recent residential developments had drawn the urban edge of the town to the boundary of the proposed flats site and the plans would form an 'appropriate' and 'attractive' entrance to Diss.
The news comes after Persimmon Homes revealed that it was drawing up altered plans for 50 one-bed and two-bed flats on the nearby former Bartrum's site in Victoria Road.
The national house builder's scheme for 56 apartments was turned down by South Norfolk Councillors earlier this year over concerns about the density and number of car parking spaces.
