Easter Sunday Shop Trading Policy

The Shop Trading Hours Act 1990 (the Act) was amended in 2016 to enable Councils to decide whether retailers in their districts can open on Easter Sunday. Prior to the amendment, the Act only permitted shops selling certain types of goods (dairies, service stations and garden centres) to remain open on Easter Sunday.

The Act allows Central Hawke’s Bay District Council (CHBDC) to introduce a local policy to allow for shop trading in their entire district or in limited areas on Easter Sunday.

CHBDC has adopted a draft policy for consultation which permits trading on Easter Sunday throughout the entire Central Hawke’s Bay District. Council considered a number of options, including maintaining the status quo and only allowing Easter Sunday trading in parts of the district. Council decided to consult upon a consistent approach across the entire district.

This is an opportunity for the community to have their say. We would like to hear from you as to whether:

  1. You agree with having a policy which allows more shops to open on Easter Sunday.
  2. You think this policy should apply to all shops across the district, or just in certain areas.

Full Statement of Proposal

You can make a submission online using this form.

Submissions close 5:00pm on Friday 30th June 2017.
