Objections have been raised to a proposed housing development in North Lincolnshire.
Plans have been submitted to North Lincolnshire Council for 10 homes to be built on Wendover Road in Messingham.
The proposals would see the demolition of an existing bungalow to make way for the new development.
However, objections have been raised by local residents and Messingham Parish Council.
Residents have said the development is unsuitable for the narrow road it is proposed for.
Meanwhile, the parish council has said the site is too high density for the proposed dwellings.

It added that it believed there was insufficient parking space at the site and that the development would raise concerns about access to Wendover Road.
North Lincolnshire Council’s planning officers say the main issue to determine is whether the development would be acceptable in terms of layout, character and density.
In a report prepared for the council’s planning committee, an officer has recommended that permission should be granted for the development.
The planning committee will discuss the application at its latest meeting on Wednesday, August 30.
