Overview

We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location - Clutterbucks, 24-26 High Street, Cam, Dursley, GL11 5LE, where it will continue to operate as one of our modern, main style branches.

Why are we moving?

As you may be aware, our Postmasters 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, the postmaster has identified an opportunity to move this branch into a spacious, brighter and more modern premises nearby.

The new premises would be refurbished to incorporate a Gifts, Cards and Stationery store with Cam Post Office service and would offer extended retail products to our customers, over longer opening hours. Our Postmaster firmly believes that the move will help secure continued access to Post Office services locally, as well as supporting the viability of their business.

Our priority is to safeguard Post Office services to the local community in the longer term. The relocation of Cam 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 one screened and two open-plan positions, including a low-screened, modern Post Office till. The full range of Post Office products and services would continue to be available over longer opening hours, so customers can access their Post Office when it’s convenient. Customer satisfaction with these style of branches stands at 95 per cent.
