Easter trading re-visited

A letter was recently sent to businesses in the Ōpōtiki District asking whether there was an appetite to consider a change to the rules to allow for trading on Easter Sunday.

Ōpōtiki District Council’s Planning and Regulatory Manager, Barbara Dempsey, said that the question is being asked as the Shop Trading Hours Amendment Act 2016 was recently passed by central government.

“The Act gives Council the ability to develop a policy which would allow trading on Easter Sunday in all or parts of the district. Such a policy would give shops the flexibility to open on Easter Sunday at their discretion.”

“Currently we are just seeking feedback to gain a picture of public opinion. If feedback indicates that Council should pursue a policy, we can draft and go through the statutory process. If feedback is not supportive of Easter Sunday trading, and Council does not develop a new policy, then the current rules and situation will continue.”

Further information and feedback can be provided before January 13 to Ross Gardiner at Ōpōtiki District Council.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe

    other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email.

    to help fix this problem?

  6. Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
