Permission was granted in 2006 for 18 flats and four houses to be built on the site of the former service station in Mights Road after original plans were scaled down.
Architect John Bennett has made a fresh application to Waveney District Council to make some minor amendments, but said work was on course to start soon.
“We're hopefully about to start in the next few weeks. There are some external changes, but we're not doing anything major and there is no big drama. You might call it fine-tuning,” he said.

There have been changes to the internal floor plans and other amendments include revisions to the gym, refuse store and services' room in the flats' basement. There will also be the addition of landscaping and the building will have a 'living' green roof similar to that at the Adnams Brewery distribution centre.
“It's certainly going to cheer up that area quite a lot,” added Mr Bennett.
