A cafe owner is hoping to convert her premises into a coastal home.
Hazel Watts, who owns the Seabreeze Cafe in Pier Gardens, Gorleston, wants to transform the premises into a three-bedroom house.
The applicant plans to remove the tables and chairs and instead furnish a sitting-room leading to a dining-room and kitchen.
The first floor would consist of three bedrooms, with no bedrooms on the ground floor due to high flood risk.
A previous application was refused by planners over flooding concerns.
The building lies in a flood zone and the Environment Agency (EA) had objected unless the blueprint included raised floors and a higher refuge for occupants of the house.
