Sunday Trading Northern Ireland Survey

Usdaw has opposed plans from Belfast City Council over the past few years to open shops for longer on Sundays.

The Council are currently consulting the public on how to improve the public’s experience of Sundays in Belfast. Once again, longer shop opening hours are part of the plans. The outcome of this consultation is likely to affect people right across Northern Ireland. 

Usdaw has so far managed to stop Belfast City Council from removing the restrictions on Sunday trading. The proposals would have seen large stores able to open longer on Sundays and, we believe, would have led to increasing deregulation of trading hours across the whole of Northern Ireland.

With your help, we can continue to protect our members.

Usdaw will use the results from this survey to support and evidence our campaign. Information on how we process and store personal data can be found in our privacy notice.
