Results Updated 17 Jan 2020

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



We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location: Best One, 836-838 Bury Road, Bolton, BL2 6PA.

Why are we moving?

As you may be aware, this branch has been operated on our behalf by a temporary Postmaster. We have therefore had to identify an alternative location to continue to offer Post Office services to the local community. A new agent has been identified to operate the above Post Office.

Our priority is to safeguard Post Office services to the local community in the longer. The relocation of Breightmet Post Office will enable us to maintain a Post Office service to our customers in the local community.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services in a modern, open-plan environment alongside the operator’s retail. Working with the postmaster, we’d adapt the current store layout, fixtures and fittings to accommodate the Post Office. It will be in a dedicated area of the store with two open-plan positions. A wide range of Post Office products and services would be available.

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.
