Easter Sunday Trading – consultation now open

Should all shops in Upper Hutt have the option to trade on Easter Sunday?

Currently, most shops cannot trade on Easter Sunday under the Shop Trading Hours Act 1990. However, the Act now allows Council to introduce a policy giving all shops the option to trade on Easter Sunday, either throughout, or in parts of Upper Hutt. Council has decided to consult on an Easter Sunday trading policy applying to the whole of Upper Hutt. If the policy is adopted, all local shops throughout Upper Hutt would have the option to trade on Easter Sunday. The policy would apply only to Easter Sunday and not to Good Friday or Easter Monday. Before a decision is made, we’d like to know what you think.
