A PLANNING application has been submitted for a by-pass on the Yorkshire coast.

But the scheme for the £15.3m diversion on the Scarborough to Filey road is being opposed by residents of Osgodby who recently forced a public inquiry.

They say the scheme will split their community. Instead they put forward a shorter, and cheaper scheme costing £4m, but a decision on the by-pass has yet to be announced by the Government Planning Inspectorate.

Osgodby and Cayton parish councils are both opposing the scheme.
