East Riding Council is considering plans to expand a market town by building 1,900 homes, a new school and a pub.

The plan for Howden would also see a new relief road and factory.

The outline plans will go before East Riding Council's planning committee this week.

However six people have so far raised concerns about the effect on traffic, public transport and the environment.

Applicants JG Hatcliffe and Howden Joinery Properties Ltd said the development would be a slowly growing community designed to foster links between residents and the existing town.

The design of the houses is planned reflect those already in the town to create 'a sensitive, locally responsive development.'

The project will be 'robust, legible and accessible and will contribute positively to the town, delivering a safe and attractive environment rooted firmly in its place from the outset.'

'It will create a desirable place that will stand the test of time and that people will be proud of and want to inhabit for many years to come.'

The plans for the Howden Joinery factory expansion say: 'The proposals represent a high-quality development and a substantial investment, which will help to promote and support employment growth and stimulate continued economic investment to the area.'
