Members of the public are to get their say on the future of Havering after councillors agreed to consult on its local plan.
Residents will be asked to agree a set of “key strategic priorities” for the borough. Town centre development, transport infrastructure and new housing provision are among them.
Issues such as the green belt, climate change and heritage will also feature.
Cllr Osman Dervish, cabinet member with responsibility for the plan, confirmed the consultation had been agreed at a meeting of the cabinet on Wednesday.
He said: “Everyone wanted to make sure that as wide a consultation as possible was held.”

The plan, which sets out priorities for the next 15 years, will replace Havering’s Local Development Framework, which was agreed in 2008.
Revision of the plan has been made necessary by the publication of new policies by the government and Mayor of London.
