People in Littleport, near Ely, will get the chance to have their say on emerging plans for a major mixed-use development that could include up to 250 new homes.
The blueprint - for land between Woodfen Road and the A10 - also includes proposals for around 4,000 square metres of business space.
Before a formal planning application is submitted in the autumn, a consultation event will be held at Littleport Village Hall to invite feedback and gauge opinion.
Cambridgeshire-based property consultants Cheffins has been co-ordinating the draft masterplan of the site, which will set out the main points of access, the general layout of buildings, open spaces and landscaping.
The outline application will seek permission for up to 250 residential properties - 30% of which will be affordable housing.
The plan also includes around 4,000 sq m of business space, which is likely to include units for both light and general industrial use.
The land has been allocated for development in the new East Cambridgeshire District Council Local Plan.
Ben Pridgeon, Senior Planner with Cheffins, said: "We'd like to invite local residents, businesses and stakeholders to comment on the draft masterplan for the site.
"Experienced staff from Cheffins will be on hand at the consultation event to answer any questions and there will be the opportunity to complete feedback forms.
"The comments will then be used to help us shape our final proposals and address any issues that might arise."
The consultation event will take place at Littleport Village Hall on July 13th between 4pm and 8pm.
For those who cannot attend, copies of the masterplan and exhibition boards will be available to view at the parish council offices.
