Buckfastleigh TQ11 0AA - 205552

Closed 2 Jul 2019

Opened 21 May 2019

Results Updated 9 Aug 2019

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 – Huccaby’s News, 46 Fore Street, Buckfastleigh, TQ11 0AA and change to one of our new local style branches. 

Why are we moving?

The current postmaster has resigned and the premises will no longer be available for Post Office use after Wednesday 5 June 2019. 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 our services in the locality in the longer term and the relocation of Buckfastleigh 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 at two low-screened, open-plan, modern serving points that’s part of the retail counter. Working with the postmaster, we’d adapt the current store layout, fixtures and fittings to accommodate the Post Office till if needed. The branch will offer a wide range of Post Office products and services. Customer satisfaction with local style branches stands at 96 per cent, and nearly 20 per cent of local branch customers visit outside traditional opening hours.

To restore Post Office services as quickly as possible to the local community, your new-look Post Office service is scheduled to open at the new premises on Monday 10 June 2019 at 13:00. The current Post Office branch is planned to close on Wednesday 5 June 2019 at 13:00.

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.
