"However, prior to finalising the application proposals, it has transpired that there has been a need to undertake further surveys and design work in relation to the proposals to repair and convert the listed buildings, which are in a poor condition. 

"These proposals are being finalised at the moment, and [Norwich River] hope to be in a position to submit an application soon."
