The draft blueprint showing how Preston will grow over the next 15 years is to be submitted to the Government.
Preston’s Local Plan, formerly known as the Local Development Framework, is based upon previous consultations about which areas of land should be brought forward for new housing and development.
It has identified massive growth in Cottam and north west Preston, with 5,300 homes to be built there by 2028.
The council is now seeking the views of the public, developers and interested groups about whether the plan has been prepared correctly.
Comments can be submitted until Monday, November 25.
Coun John Swindells, deputy leader of the council, said: “This plan is a roadmap for future developments in the city.
“It is therefore extremely important that local people have their say in shaping the future of Preston over the next 15 years.
“All comments will be carefully considered and submitted to the planning inspector.”
The plan also sets out additional primary school provision in Whittingham, Cottam, and north west Preston, primary care facilities in central Preston, Ingol and north west Preston, and new rules banning hot food takeaways within 400 metres of primary and secondary schools and sixth forms.
All comments received will be submitted along with the plan to the independent planning inspectorate, which will then hold a public examination. This is expected to take place in spring next year.
The plan will be available to view at Preston Town Hall, libraries, leisure centres and other locations in the city.
