Waikato District Council is seeking feedback on the Easter Trading Policy for 2022.

In 2016, the Council adopted the current policy which allows shops to trade on Easter Sunday if they wish to. Without this policy, shops in the Waikato District would not be allowed to open unless they fit criteria set out in the Shop Trading Hours Act 1990.

We are now reviewing the Policy and would like your feedback on whether we continue to permit trading on Easter Sunday from 2022.

For proposed options and further information, please refer to the Statement of Proposal and submit either via the form below or the submission form in the Document Library.
