Let York Decide Its Own Sunday Shop Laws, Says Council Leader


York’s Tory council leader is part of a group campaigning for local power over Sunday trading laws.

Chris Steward has added his name to a list of Conservative local politicians writing to the Planning Minister Brandon Lewis, asking that changes to Sunday trading laws be left to local communities.

Cllr Steward said: “Relaxing these laws could have a positive effect on trade throughout the city centre, on the other hand there are people who have strong feelings on this matter, and so without taking any position on what is best for York at this point, York Conservatives firmly support the position that whether or not to extend Sunday trading is exactly the sort of decision which should be made at the local level following appropriate consultation.
