A public inquiry into a council decision to refuse 200 homes from being built in North Walsham will be held on August 21.
Developers are attempting to overturn North Norfolk District Council's decision to deny permission to build on land between Aylsham Road and Greens Road on August 3 last year.
The council's development committee said it was on land designated as countryside and therefore represented a departure from the development plans.
It was the second time the scheme had been turned down. The developer was also refused permission for its original plan in March 2017.
Developers, MLN (Land and Properties) Ltd and Simon Ross Beardshaw and Nigel Rossi have since lodged an appeal with the planning inspectorate in a bid to challenge the council's decision.
