More than 1500 submissions have been received on Hastings District Council's proposed speed limit changes.
In July the council released the proposal to alter speed limits on 70 roads across the district.
The changes affect both whole roads and sections of roads and includes mainly speed reductions but also some increases.
The proposal came after public requests and roads identified by the New Zealand Transport Agency where speed reductions could make a big difference in preventing deaths and serious injuries.
In response to the number of submissions, which opened August 3, the council is holding further drop-in sessions.
Drop-in sessions where people can hear more about the changes will be held next week.
They will be:
