Thousands of homes could be built to the south of a Northamptonshire town under revised plans to be considered by a council.
The plan for Towcester Vale, first mooted in 2007, includes 2,750 homes as well as schools, shops, a medical centre, community centre and hotel.
Bloor Homes and Persimmon Homes reduced the number of homes by 250 following a consultation last year.
The application is open to comments from the public until 11 October.
The fresh plan, submitted to South Northamptonshire Council in August, includes a second primary school, a reconfigured design for a new relief road and "decreased employment space to reduce traffic".
The homes would be built between the A5 and A43, enclosing the village of Wood Burcote.
