Talks have begun about plans to create a number of new villages - with six thousand extra homes - on the outskirts of Scunthorpe.

The Lincolnshire Lakes project would develop a cluster of communities between the western edge of the town and the River Trent, bringing with it three thousand construction jobs. People living in the area have until the 20th of May to make their comments.
