A plan that would complete the development of Little Stanion was approved by borough councillors.
It's an outline planning application for between 99 and 135 homes for a four hectare site that's already been cleared.
A report for councillors says development of Little Stanion was stalled by builders going into administration following the financial crash of the late 2000s.
And subject to conditions work can now begin on a new village hall for Cottingham.
Borough councilllors approved a proposal to build the new facility at a site on Mill Road near the village's C of E Primary School.
The parish council would own and run the hall..to provide a venue for social engagements, performances, plus indoor sport and dance.
