Sunday trading licences

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9.00am on Friday 24 November and 6.00pm on Saturday 25 November, you'll be unable to view documents online during this time.

We keep a public register of any large shops who trade on a Sunday.

Large shops cannot open for trading at all on Easter Sunday, or Christmas Day if that should fall on a Sunday.

Shops that need to register with us

Shops with a floor area over 3,000 square feet must inform us of the hours they intend to trade on a Sunday. They must specify a six hour period between the hours of 10.00am and 6.00pm when they will trade.

Please contact us if you are a large shop and you want to join the register, or  find out who is on the register.
