A further date for people to find out more about a proposed power station on Eye Airfield has been arranged for Monday.
Progress Power, the company behind the plans, said that in response to demand from councillors and the community it would be holding an exhibition in Yaxley.
This will be at Yaxley Village Hall from 4pm to 8pm.
The date is in addition to those held this week, and to come this weekend, in Mellis, Diss, Brome and Eye.
Progress Power, said that if given the go-ahead, the scheme would have the capacity to generate up to 299 MW of electricity and potentially power up to 400,000 homes.
It could create up to 250 jobs during the two- to three-year construction period, it added, and 15 permanent skilled jobs for on-going operation and maintenance. The plant could become operational in 2018.
The consultation period will end on November 7 with the hope of submitting an application for a Development Consent Order to the Planning Inspectorate early next year.
