Controversial proposals to build 32 homes on the site of a detached house have been recommend for approval by planning officers.
The application for Cobham Lodge, Gravesend, wants to convert the existing £1million, four-bed property into 10 flats and change the outbuilding into two houses.
It also wants to construct a new apartment building with 11 flats and build eight semi-detached homes and one detached house on the plot off the A2.
Parking, cycle and bin storage areas and gardens have also been built into the plans.
The revised idea comes just two years after larger plans for 64 flats on-site dubbed "the worst planning application in history" by disgruntled neighbours, were rejected.
Last month, TikTok influencer and mortgage advisor Saira Haider asked her followers to support the proposals for Cobham Lodge in Valley Drive, near Nell's Cafe.
She said she was backing the scheme as it was, in her view, well designed and would bring much needed homes and economic benefits to the area.
However, residents and some councillors are concerned that if plans are approved the site could set a dangerous housebuilding precedent "to anyone with a big garden".
Councillors voted unanimously to reject the previous plans in January 2020 which they deemed were "out of character" with the area.
It followed complaints from neighbours that the proposal would have created noise, disturbance, ruin privacy, bring increased traffic and lead to overcrowding.
However, in its revised bid, the applicant says it has "positively and proactively" engaged with council officers to address such concerns as part of its resubmission.
More than 600 comments were received on the current application with a balance of 185 in support to 419 objections.
It is now set to be discussed by councillors at a planning committee on Wednesday, November 23.
Officers have recommended the decision is granted permission subject to planning conditions and the completion of a Section 106 agreement which outlines how much the developer will pay towards local infrastructure improvements.
The report states it is a "major application" which is in line with national and local planning policy, apart from the lack of delivery of affordable housing.
