More than 30 submissions have been made on the city's proposed District Plan changes to introduce new flood and erosion hazard areas for the Mangaroa and Hutt rivers.

The 32 submissions represents a "level of interest," the city's planning director Richard Harbord says.

The district plan change follows several years of preparatory work and is intended to make sure development in the defined hazard area is appropriately managed.

The hazard information will be introduced for the Mangaroa River, while information already in place for the Hutt River will be updated.

Mr Harbord says the public submissions will be summarised by council officers and sent out to the 32 writers, who will have the chance to consider them in total and make any further submission.

This will take place before Christmas, with planning hearings expected to be in February or March next year.
