Plans for a £100m housing and leisure development in an East Yorkshire village have gone on display.

The project in Brough would create about 850 new homes, as well as a hotel and better transport links. Developers say it will also lead to 550 new jobs.

The public can inspect details of the proposals at the village's Peturia Centre from Tuesday.

The scheme, which needs planning permission, will then go before East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Concerns have been raised by some villagers that the development is too big, and they already have enough houses, but not enough health and recreation facilities.

The scheme's joint developers are housing company Horncastle Plc, Redrow Homes, Riplingham Estates Ltd and and BAE Systems.

They said they would listen to residents' views before submitting the planning application at the end of the year.
