Developers have revealed plans to convert a failed mental health hospital into 27 homes.
Beccles-based Lion Properties is asking planners for permission to convert its wards into homes across three buildings on the countryside site.
The scheme involves adding a floor to one of the wings to create 27 one and two bedroom flats.
Documents submitted to North Norfolk District Council say the plans chime with a range of policies despite being outside the village development boundary in an area designated as open countryside.
They say most of the trees and vegetation will remain, although some of the grassed areas will be given over for more parking.
