Proposals have been sent to Great Yarmouth Borough Council to build two new homes at Nelson House in South Quay.

The building, which is currently empty, used to house a branch of Norfolk County Council Children's Services department before it was sold.

Developers Norwich-based Daylight Developments said any external changes to the building would take note of the local characteristics.

The site sits within a conservation zone.
