A business hoping to grow and hire more staff could expand into new offices if a planning application gets the thumbs up.
The bid, currently in the hands of planners at North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), would see a redundant agricultural building converted into offices.
The site is at Stody Hall Barns on Brinton Road in Stody, near Melton Constable.
Most of the other former farm buildings on the site have already been converted into a mix of rural offices and storage.
According to papers submitted with the application, there are currently three businesses based there, one of which, Solana Seeds, a seed potato merchant, has a need for more office space for a growing team.
The company is an independent subsidiary of the Solana Group, based in Hamburg, which had been marketing its potato seed stock in Britain since 2013.
