Blaydon On Tyne NE21 5BT - 158329

Closed 14 May 2018

Opened 29 Mar 2018

Results Updated 8 Jun 2018

Following local public consultation, the letter below confirms our final plans for the service.



We are proposing to re-open the above Post Office branch at a new location – Blaydon Convenience Store, 3 Harriet Street, Blaydon-On-Tyne, NE21 4DE and change it to one of our new local style branches. This branch closed temporarily in August 2015 following the withdrawal of premises for Post Office use.  We are now in a position to restore a service to our customers in the local community and the establishment of a new local style branch presents the best possible solution in the area.  

We’re proposing this move as part of the ongoing modernisation of our branch network. Over the last five years we have transformed over 7,500 branches so more customers can access Post Office products and services in a modern and friendly environment, often over longer hours including Sundays. We are confident that introducing a local style branch alongside a successful retail store is the most effective way to safeguard sustainable Post Office services in the Blaydon-On-Tyne community into the future. 




Why We Are Consulting

We’re carrying out a local public consultation and we’d welcome your views on the proposal. We welcome feedback and comments that can help inform our plans.
