Carlisle City Council is in the process of writing a new "Local Plan", which will outline where different developments could be located in the future.
The plans, which set policies and guidelines for developments in the district over the next 15 years, include guides on new housing, business development and infrastructure, climate change and the natural and historic environment.
The council is proposing to build between 550 and 650 new homes every year until 2030 , with 70% of these homes being built in urban areas and 30% in rural areas.
