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.
In July, a number of events were held at Carrow Abbey, in the grounds of Carrow Works in Bracondale, where the public had the opportunity to get involved in the forging of plans for the area.
On Friday (October 15) and Saturday (October 16), progress on the masterplan, following the public feedback, will be revealed at two further events.

Mike Stonard, chair of the East Norwich Partnership, said: "We would like to offer the chance for people to see how feedback has been used to inform the master planning process, as well as provide further opportunity for engagement.
“I’d urge anyone with an interest in the east Norwich area to come along with their questions and suggestions – and get an insight into the important and exciting work happening to ensure we can harness the full potential of this part of the city.”
The drop in events are at Carrow Abbey from 2.30pm until 5.30pm on Friday and from 10am until 1pm on Saturday.
