More than 70 houses could be built on the site of a former secondary school - four years after planning permission was originally granted.
Tealby Commercial Ltd wants to build 71 homes on the site of the former William Gee secondary school in Bishop Alcock Road, west Hull, with plans for two, three and four-bedroom homes.
Outline planning permission for 81 detached, semi-detached and terraced houses was granted in 2015 following an application by Hodson Architects but the building work never materialised and the application has expired.
Now, Tealby Commercial has submitted a new application to Hull City Council, which is being supported by some residents.

Full details of the plans are scarce at the moment but it has been welcomed by neighbours in nearby Reeth Walk, but requests have been made for a fence or brick wall between the new site and the existing homes.
The neighbour said: “I fully support the proposed site layout.
"It gives privacy to the residents of Reeth Walk and is a thoughtfully attractive development, with clear, easy access to the public amenity area bordering the railway line.
“I would respectfully request of the developer that the border between the development and Reeth Walk is either a heavy 'close boarded' fence or a Brick wall.
“I would also request that it is included in the sale contract that residents of the properties bordering on Reeth Walk may not create any openings or gates in this border fence/wall since Reeth Walk is not an adopted pathway, it is wholly maintained on the basis of the rents and service charges to the residents of Reeth Walk."
Councillors will now consider the application and residents are invited to look at the plans via the Hull City Council website, searching under reference number 18/01434/RES.
