Detailed plans have been submitted for 44 new homes at the site of a former nursery in Terrington St Clement.
Full planning permission is being sought for the homes on a five-acre plot off Benns Lane.
The former Suttons of Wisbech site is currently covered by disused commercial greenhouses.
Norwich-based applicant Fosse Urban Projects Limited is proposing a mixture of detached and semi-detached homes with “more generous” back gardens, including nine affordable properties.
The development, granted outline permission by West Norfolk Council in 2018, would be accessed via Benns Lane.
