Revised plans have been drawn up for the redevelopment of a prominent building in Lynn’s town centre.

Planning permission for the site at 23 Tuesday Market Place was refused by West Norfolk Council last December, though the authority did grant listed building consent.

But developer Warrant Properties Ltd have now made a new application to provide business and housing space within the Grade II listed building.

Flats, restaurants and an office are proposed for this site in Lynn's Tuesday Market Place (33865431)

The new scheme is the subject of both planning and listed building applications, due to changes made from the original proposal.

It envisages two restaurant units and an office unit on the ground floor of the three-storey building, with five flats on the two floors above.

Three are proposed for the first floor and two above that.

The previous scheme sought consent for one of the flats to be at ground level.

But the borough council said it wasn’t happy about the potential flood risk for that part of the plan.

It also cited concerns about the standard of living for occupants of the flats among its grounds for refusal.

However, documents submitted as part of the new application say: “It is considered that the proposed development complies with the relevant development plan and national policy, and the concerns that led to the previous refusal have been addressed.”

Planning officials have indicated they hope to reach a decision on the new applications by early June.
