Dereham Town Council wants to hear people's concerns about congestion and how future development could being even more vehicles to the town.
It says it has 'significant concerns' about a transport plan prepared as part of the proposed Breckland Local Plan.
A study commissioned by the town council says the district's transport plan does not include traffic growth which will follow proposals to build more than 500 homes in Shipdham and Swanton Morley.
It adds the district council study also only consider weekday peak periods and failed to take account of the 'weekend peak' when shoppers drive into the town centre from a wide area.
The meeting is being held at the Memorial Hall, in Norwich Street, from 7 - 9pm on Monday.
