A group of residents are set to demonstrate against a proposed planning application to develop 122 new homes on a site in Scunthorpe.
Friends of Queensway Family Field will be holding a protest against plans to develop new homes on the Brumby Resource Centre site on East Common lane.
Elaine Berry, chair of the group, confirmed the plans and said that people need to know about the development.
She said: "We will be demonstrating the site visit on Wednesday morning and already have banners and signs ready.
"People I have spoken to on the Queensway Fields do not seem to know about the plans, so we intend to let them know."
A demonstration will also take place outside the planning meeting at the Civic Centre, Ashby Road.
The application will be going before North Lincolnshire Council's planning committee on Wednesday (March 8).
The site is on the former Brumby Hospital site which buildings have now been cleared.
37 letters of objection were received for the application concerning the playing fields on the site.
The council is minded to grant permission for the application based on conditions.
