BUILDERS could put up another 463 houses in the lower Holme Valley in the next 10 years.
Now, residents will be asked at a Kirklees Council committee meeting if they want them and where they should go.
The Local Development Framework scheme is designed to provide better housing, with cleaner streets and better public spaces.
Matthew Good, planning liaison officer for Kirklees, said a study had revealed that, potentially, 463 new homes could be developed in the area over the next 10 years.
"We are asking people to give their opinions on what they want us to do with them," he added. "They may not want us to develop houses in their area. If so, they should have their say at the meeting."
Mr Good went on: "At the moment we are simply on a fact-finding mission. We don't have any direct proposals of our own, so any suggestions are very welcome".
Kirklees Council's Holme Valley North Area Committee is to meet on Thursday, January 29, at Honley C of E Junior School on Jagger Lane at 7.30pm.
A meeting regarding similar proposals for development in the Huddersfield area is provisionally planned for February 18 at the town hall.
