Three modern townhouses are to be built on Sheringham's seafront.
North Norfolk District Council has approved plans to knock down a 1970s-era three-storey block of flats next to the former Burlington Hotel for the project.
Mr Peters-Foster of north Norfolk developer Cromarty Homes is behind the plans for the 575m sq site at 2 The Esplanade.
The site used to be part of the grounds of the Burlington Hotel and was sold off in the 1970s for development.
The application says of the four-bedroom townhouses: "The proposed houses are to be three storeys in scale and are intentionally higher than that of the existing building.
You may also want to watch:
"Over time it is hoped that other buildings on the Esplanade will be replaced to a similar scale to form a more strongly defined sea frontage that better relates to the grand urban setting."
There will be resident parking at both the front and rear of the new townhouses.
