People can have their say on proposals for more than 2,500 houses to be built on 40 new sites.
Housing developers have put forward where they would like to put properties in the Broadland District Council area by 2026.
Several are desired for unused, largely agricultural land, with Taverham, Thorpe St Andrew, Marsham and Reepham among the communities subject to the biggest interest.
Broadland shortlisted scores of sites for development after two years of public consultations between 2009 and 2011.
But now developers have been given a chance to suggest alternatives. The consultation closes on August 6.
Shaun Vincent, planning portfolio holder at Broadland, said: “There is absolutely no presumption these sites are suitable for development, and we want to listen to the public at all stages, so the preferred options will be subject to consultation again later.”
To view the plans visit www.broadland.gov.uk/ldf or visit any of the libraries in the Broadland district, or the Millennium Library, Norwich, or visit Broadland’s offices in Yarmouth Road, Thorpe St Andrew.
