Plans have been submitted to demolish a garage and vehicle repair business close to the A140 and build new homes on the site.
The owners of Scole Engineering plan to relocate the existing family business to a smaller facility if approval is given to convert the site on Diss Road.
A planning application submitted to South Norfolk Council seeks permission to remove two 1960s commercial buildings to make way for nine new homes.
The plans include pairs of semi-detached two-story style three-bed properties along the street eastwards from The Laurels, while further back on the sloping site two one and a half story houses then at the rear of the land bungalow style accommodation.
The application describes it as: "A small development to complement the aesthetics of the street whilst supplying a variety of housing styles to accommodate differing needs and allowing the relocation of a family business to a smaller facility."
