Easter Sunday Trading Policy

Should Porirua have Easter Sunday trading?

We wanted to hear your views whether or not the Council should adopt a local policy that allows shops to open on Easter Sunday.

For further information, see:

Copies are also available at the Council’s libraries and front counter of the Administration Building, cnr Hagley Street and Cobham Court.

Submissions closed on 29 March 2017.

The Council considered this topic at its meeting on Wednesday 5 April 2017 and voted to keep the status quo.

There were 86 submissions, with 66% in favour of keeping shops closed on Easter Sunday.

Therefore shops in Porirua will remain closed on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

The Council may consider this topic again in the future.
