Residents will get another chance to comment on plans for 4,410 homes in the Maldon district.
The Local Development Plan sets out locations for new homes including North Heybridge, South Maldon, Burnham and villages.
Comments will be collected from tomorrow until March 7, then the final version of the LDP will be submitted to the Secretary of State for an examination in public.
Maldon District Council leader Bob Boyce said: “Change isn’t always easy to accept, but in this district there is real pressure for new homes and an up to date plan to guide future development.
"The LDP will set out the planning strategy for future growth by delivering sustainable development across the Maldon district over the next 15 years.”
