New 24-hour trading laws in Sydney


New laws allowing 24-hour trading throughout Sydney were unanimously approved by the City Council on Tuesday, reports Straits Times.

Businesses in the city centre will now be able to apply for a 24-hour trading licence, while businesses in residential areas on the periphery can apply for extended trading hours.

The overwhelming support for change stems from laws introduced by the state government in 2014 to curb alcohol-related violence.
