Relocation plan for Charlesworth post office

Charlesworth residents can have their say on plans to relocate their village post office.

The Post Office wants to move the Charlesworth facility 50 metres from its current location at 9 Glossop Road, to Charlesworth News, at 5 Marple Road.

Part of a major modernisation programme across the network, the move would see the creation of a modern, open-plan Post Office branch in Charlesworth with extended opening hours.

Adrian Wales, Post Office Regional Network Manager for Central England, said: “We understand how important Post Office services are to residents in Charlesworth and we are confident that this new modern branch will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”

An eight-week public consultation, closing on January 3, has been launched to seek the views of customers, who can write to Freepost, Your Comments, Post Office Ltd, email comments@postoffice.co.uk, call 08457 22 33 44 or textphone 08457 22 33 55. Customers can also complete a questionnaire at postofficeviews.co.uk, using the branch code 254432.
