A decision over a proposal to develop a wind farm on the site of a former Second World War airfield has been deferred.
East Riding councillors agreed to defer a decision on the application for the site at Lissett for three weeks to allow more time to investigate the potential impact on tourism in the area.
They also want to investigate a pledge by developers Novera Energy to set up a community trust fund.
The proposal will be considered by the council again on February 22.
