New plans to build homes on the site of a former Lynn cinema and nightclub have been revealed, just two months after the previous scheme was rejected.
Developers behind the proposals for the old Zoots nightclub site on John Kennedy Road say they have listened to the concerns raised by councillors over development in the area.
The new application by Freebridge Community Housing would allow for 25 new homes to be built, three fewer than the proposal rejected by the West Norfolk Council planning committee in July.
A report submitted by the developer said they had been working with planning officers since then to develop an acceptable proposal.
The firm claims that removing the three largest proposed homes from the plan will open up the site and allow a parking space to be provided for all of the properties built on the site.
There had been criticism that a lack of parking on the site would increase congestion in surrounding streets.
Meanwhile, the blocks of flats contained in the initial plan, which some councillors compared to prison blocks, have also been re-designed.
The company said: “This site is providing new housing for King’s Lynn, which will go towards meeting the identified housing need.
“The site has been a local eyesore for many years and this scheme will ensure that the anti-social behaviour it attracts will be removed from this area of the town.”
Consultations on the new proposal opened yesterday and it is thought that a decision could be made before the end of the year.
