Thetford has been given so-called Growth Point Status and a wide range of improvements as proposed as part the expansion plans.
Flagship has commissioned Keystone Development Trust to do the consultation and it also includes speaking to a range of people from youngsters at youth groups on the Abbey estate to regulars at a local bingo club.
There are also plans for a community day at the Abbey Neighbourhood Centre at the end of May.
A spokesman said: “Feedback from the questionnaires and interviews will help the future decision-making process to plan and regenerate areas of west Thetford that need attention.
“With planned growth on such a substantial scale, the focus will be on improving the environmental infrastructure of these estates, so that any impact of change will not undermine existing commun-ities.”
Keystone will be carrying out door drops to residents and will also visit community groups to interview residents for their views on how estates could be improved in the short, medium and long-term.
Anyone wanting a copy of the questionnaire or wanting more information can call Keystone Development Trust on 01842 821643.
