Plans have been submitted to convert a former office block in Bourne End into retirement homes.
Permission is being sought to demolish the Wharf Lane Business Centre, in Wharf Lane, and build 21 two-bedroom apartments in its place.
The proposals include a communal lounge, concierge's office, bin and bicycle store, as well as three one-bedroom apartments and 18 two-bedroom apartments.
The scheme also makes provision for 21 parking spaces - enough for one per flat.
Issues over parking had been raised at a public exhibition of the plans in August.
Neighbours of the site also cited concerns about privacy, which the updated application claims to have addressed.
A decision is expected by late May.
The reference number for the plans is REF:17/05241
