Over 10,000 new homes are set to go up around York in the near future, but council heads have confirmed that they will first ask the public for its opinion.
Ruling councillors recently gave the go-ahead for for the most recent draft of the Local Plan, which means that soon there will be a public consultation.
The consultation, which will take place over a period of eight weeks, will provide the public with its first chance to tell planners for the City of York Council what it thinks of the revisited employment and housebuilding plans for the future.
The executive member for planning, Cllr Ian Gillies, encouraged local residents to take advantage of the consultation period, which has been specially extended.
Mr Gillies said that he would urge anyone in the city who has an opinion on the matter to join the consultation. He added that there was surely a lot contained that some residents will agree with more than their neighbours.
