Norwich City Council wants to build 100 affordable homes
Sheltered housing in Norfolk where elderly tenants were evicted and their former homes let to council staff could be demolished.
Norwich City Council wants to knock down 28 units at Greyhound Opening and Goldsmith Street and build 100 affordable homes.
The complex was at the centre of a row last year when council staff moved in at very low rents.
If permission is granted, construction could be completed by 2012.
Kristine Reeves, the council's head of neighbourhood and strategic housing, was dismissed after it emerged just before Christmas last year that she and other staff had moved in to Greyhound Opening.
Elderly tenants had been evicted and the homes earmarked for demolition.
