Plans to create 800 new homes as well as a care home have been put on hold today by councillors.
A meeting today was meant to decide if a former MoD site at Eaglescliffe could be developed.
Councillors said they were "minded to refuse" permission for the overall plan and needed more time to discuss plans submitted for a care home.
