Progress on the potential multi-million pound development of part of Norwich to create thousands of homes and jobs will be revealed later this week.
The public is invited to two drop-in events as work continues on a masterplan for the East Norwich area - a blueprint to guide development on major city sites, including the Carrow Works factory which used to be home to Colman's and Britvic.
Council bosses say the redevelopment of the area, including the Deal Ground/May Gurney site at Trowse, the Utilities site between Thorpe Hamlet and Whitlingham and Carrow House, could create up to 4,000 homes.
A public-private East Norwich Partnership has been formed to get the area regenerated.
Norwich City Council's cabinet appointed consultants Avison Young to produce a £500,000 masterplan for the area.
