Kildare County Council is asking councillors for their views on a proposal to build 375 homes in Kildare Town.
An Bord Pleanála is considering the proposal, by Ballymount Properties Limited, to build 185 houses, 190 apartments and a creche on a section of the site.
As this is defined as a Strategic Housing Development, Kildare County Council will not be the body which decides whether to grant planning permission.
The closing date for submissions on the proposal to ABP has elapsed.
Kildare County Council will seek the views of elected members at the next meeting of the Kildare/Newbridge Municipal District.
