Easter Trading

Under recent changes to legislation, councils can now choose to develop an Easter Trading Policy to allow trading on Easter Sundays in all, or some parts of the District. 

Council has not yet determined whether to develop a policy and therefore trading for Easter 2018 is still subject to the national restrictions. 

Follow the link below for more information on the trading restrictions for Easter Sunday.
