Easter Sunday Shop Trading

Earlier this year, the government amended the Shop Trading Hours Act 1990 (Act) to allow territorial authorities to have a policy to permit shops to open on Easter Sundays. The changes do not apply to other holiday dates such as Easter Friday for which current trading restrictions will remain.

In accordance with the Act, the Rotorua Lakes Council (Council) is proposing a new Easter Sunday Shop Trading Policy and is seeking your views.
