Proposed move to new premises & branch modernisation

As you may recall, last year we held a period of public consultation to relocate the above Post Office to new premises located at Bargain Booze, 98 Derby Road, Stapleford, Nottingham, NG9 7AD. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we were not able to proceed at the time.

I’m now writing to let you know that we are proposing, with the Postmaster’s agreement to move the above Post Office branch to a new premises at Sean’s Shop, 66A Derby Road, Stapleford, Nottingham, NG9 7AB. This move will be subject to a further local public consultation and I’m pleased to tell you that if the move goes ahead, it will change to one of our new local style branches.

This change is part of a major programme of modernisation taking place across the Post Office network, the largest in the history of Post Office Ltd.  The Programme is underpinned by Government investment and will see up to 8,000 branches modernised and additional investment in over 3,000 community and outreach branches.

What will this mean for customers?

  • Post Office services will be offered from a till on the retail counter in a modern open plan branch
  • Longer opening hours
  • The majority of Post Office products and services will still be available

Consulting on the proposed new location

We’re now starting a 6 week local public consultation and would like you to tell us what you think about the suitability of the proposed new location. Before we finalise our plans, we would really like to hear your views on the proposed location, particularly on the following areas. 

  • How suitable you think the new location and premises are and how easy it is to get there
  • Are the new premises easy for you to get into and is the inside easily accessible
  •    Are there any other local community issues which you believe could be affected by or affect the proposed change
  • If the move were to proceed is there anything we could do to make it easier for customers

I’ve enclosed an information sheet that provides more details about the new location and the range of products that will be available. If you have any comments or questions, please email or write to me via our Communication and Consultation team, whose contact details are below. Please note that your comments will not be kept confidential unless you expressly ask us to do so by clearly marking them “In Confidence”.  Any information we receive will be considered as we finalise our plans for the new branch.  If others in your organisation are interested in the proposal, please feel free to let them know about it.
