Birds Eye plan to build 185 homes on Hessle Road factory site delayed
Controversial plans for 185 homes on the site of the former Birds Eye factory have been deferred.
The proposals put forward by the owner were set to be considered by Hull City Council's planning committee yesterday.
But councillors decided on a site visit and the application will now go before the next meeting on Wednesday, March 6.
A petition has been signed by 130 residents backing plans for the housing development despite being recommended for refusal by planning officials.

Birds Eye wants to build 185 homes on the land off Hessle Road along with some light industrial units.
The site has lain empty since the pea processing plant closed in 2007.
Two years ago, Birds Eye sought permission for 260 homes on the site but it was rejected by the council because the land is designated for commercial use.
Birds Eye believes the compromise between residential and industrial use should help with the application's success.
The redevelopment of the 65,000sq ft area of land will include seven commercial units alongside the homes.
