Overview

We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location: Co-Op, Unit 3, Block B, West Way Square, Botley, OX2 9TJ, where it will operate as one of our local style branches.

Why are we moving?

Following the resignation of the postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use, Botley Post Office will be closing. The date of closure is currently being finalised and will be confirmed in due course.

However an opportunity has arisen to move this branch into brighter, more modern premises, which will offer improved facilities to our customers. As you will be aware, our partners and agents operate Post Office branches alongside their private retail business, and it is important that they make the very best use of their resources to ensure future sustainability of both their business and the Post Office service. In this case, our partner has identified an opportunity to move this branch into premises which will offer improved facilities to our customers.

Why We Are Consulting

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

What Happens Next

Thank you for considering our proposal. We will take into account any information and feedback we receive as we finalise our plans for the new branch.
