A start date's been set for work to begin on the £1.3bn Lincolnshire Lakes development near Scunthorpe.
Its after the Government agreed a loan to the developers.
The project would see over 6,000 new houses built and create thousands of jobs.
But it won't include a new stadium for Scunthorpe United, after the club pledged to redevelop Glanford Park instead.
Now work on infrastructure will start on January 8th.
