Plans to pull down two High Street shops and build a new glass fronted River Island store on the site in Lincoln have been resurrected.
As reported in the Echo, an application to demolish 200/201 High Street, which houses Next and Sundance Fair Trade, was received by the City of Lincoln Council.
A further application for a new three-storey River Island fashion store in its place was also submitted.
The non-listed building does not offer disabled access and is considered unsuitable for modern retail.
But the council's planning committee rejected both proposals in August on the grounds that the design is not appropriate for the conservation area.
A revised scheme has now been put forward incorporating window surrounds from the existing building and natural stone to "reduce the dominance of the glass frontage".
The scheme is to be decided at a City of Lincoln Council planning meeting at The Lawn on Monday.
Sundance has recently opened a new store in Bailgate and the lease on its High Street store expires at the end of this year. Next has previously said it is looking for alternative city centre accommodation.
