A public inquiry has opened in to whether developers St Modwen should be allowed to build 510 homes near North Ferriby. Around 1,400 households objected to the scheme, which was refused planning consent by East Riding Council in May, prompting the developers to launch an appeal.
The outcome of the public inquiry will be sent to Communities Secretary Eric Pickles for the final say.
