A former seafront hotel could be converted into flats.
The Burlington Hotel on The Esplanade, Sheringham is the last surviving hotel of three that were built in the town in the late 19th and early 20th century.
The vacant building was last in use in December 2015.
A design and access statement submitted with the application states it is in a poor state of repair.
The statement says: 'It is a prominent six-storey building dominating the roof-line of the town from all approaches.
'There is a distinct decline in the demand for this type of hotel accommodation.'
The plans submitted by Jaevee Ltd are to convert the lower ground floor, upper ground floor and first floors of the hotel to six two-bedroom flats and three three-bedroom flats, in keeping with previously permitted residential units on the second and third floors.
