The developers R&M Real Estates previously made an application for more than 80 houses on the site, which was rejected in 2016.

The new proposal is also recommended for refusal with a number of concerns regarding potential flood risk for existing homes, access for the disabled and loss of green space.

It comes as Visit England say Yorkshire had the greatest rise in visitor numbers anywhere in the country.

More people came on day trips to the county and the amount they spent went up too.

This is magnificent news for Yorkshire and confirms the many positive results our members have individually reported over the past 18 months. Through events like the Tour de Yorkshire which have showcased the county on a global scale, as well as high profile national marketing campaigns taking Yorkshire across the country, it's great to see everyone's hard work paying off and our attractions reaping the benefits."

A site near the Dunswell roundabout in north Hull was previously identified, but other locations are also being considered.

Councillors have been discussing the park and ride plans at a meeting today.

Fall in people using buses across East Yorkshire

Passengers made two million fewer journeys across Hull and East Yorkshire last year than in 2015-16, according to new statistics.

Hull and Humber Environment Forum, which has compiled the figures, says the trend for fewer bus journeys is concerning.

In response, Hull City Council says it has introduced several measures in a bid to reverse the trend such as bus lane cameras and the Hull Card, which offers passengers a discount.

Funding will also be made available to further develop a northern park and ride scheme, according to the council.

In somewhere like Hull we've seen a lot of the employment move out of the city centre. People are also going out less and staying at home more. If people don't need to travel, they won't."
