Homes scheme gets second knock-back
east Hull: Detailed plans for a contro- versial housing development have been unanimously rejected by city councillors.
Outline permission to build on part of the former Reckitts recreation ground in Chamberlain Road was approved by a government inspector last year, after an appeal by Barratt Homes.
The scheme had initially been refused by the city council's planning committee after strong opposition from local residents.
Now councillors have voted against detailed plans to build 112 homes at the site as well as four new sports pitches to be used for amateur rugby league.

The vote came after concerns were raised over a proposed emergency access route into the development, the layout of the new housing and the amount of car parking being made available for the new sports facilities. Committee chairman Councillor Sean Chaytor said: "It seems to me we have a situation where the developer is trying to get a quart into a pint pot."
Barratt spokesman Matthew Watts said the scheme would provide "much- needed" new homes.
