A new village and a major housing development are two of the main proposals to find sites for more than 5,500 new homes in part of Worcestershire.
Wyre Forest District Council has revised its local plan, schemes drawn up by every local authority to identify enough land to meet local housing needs.
In Wyre Forest, the latest stage of the proposals will see a new village at Lea Castle and an extension of Kidderminster to the east of the town.
But plans to build on the green belt at Spennells and Offmore have been dropped after heavy opposition from people who already live there.
The council's scrutiny committee will now examine the latest version of the local plan next Thursday, before a new consultation.
