A new consultation is giving North Herts residents the chance to look at a number of potential sites and give their opinions.
The potential sites are proposed by local landowners and developers: seven large sites of more than 1,000 homes and 130 smaller sites.
That's a lot of sites and - if we accept the notion that new houses are necessary to home our community - we can't all say 'Not in My Back Yard'.
To find out more, there's a Facebook page and more on the North Herts District Council website.
If you can, get along to the drop-in exhibition: Saturday 2 March, Church House, 10am-12:30pm
