Postal bosses are asking for public comments on plans to move Hucknall’s Beauvale Road Post Office.
Under the scheme, Post Offices services would be offered from an open-plan till at L W Cotton News, on Nabbs Lane, Hucknall, and the Post Office is now inviting customers and interested parties to give their comments on the move in a six-week public consultation.
Should the move go ahead, the branch would open from 6am - 6pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday; 6am - 7:30pm Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and 6am - 12:30pm on Sunday. This would offer an extra 42 hours of Post Office service every week.
The proposed move is part of major modernisation programme across the Post Office network designed to make it easier for customers to do business, through longer opening hours and modern open plan environments.
Adrian Wales, Regional Manager said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Nottingham and we are confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.
He added: “This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office and marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”
During the public consultation, Post Office Ltd welcomes feedback on any issues customers would like considered before a final decision is taken on this proposal. The consultation will close on 13 April 2015. Submissions can be made during the consultation by Freepost YOUR COMMENTS to Post Office Ltd, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, via the Customer Helpline on 08457 22 33 44 or Textphone 08457 22 33 55.
Customers can also share their views online through the quick and easy questionnaire at postofficeviews.co.uk with the branch code 170227.
