Chillingham Road NE6 5AW - 200329

Closes 30 Oct 2020

Opened 18 Sep 2020

Overview

We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location: Olive’s, 289 Chillingham Road, Heaton, NE6 5LL, where it will operate as one of our main style branches.

Why are we moving?

We’re proposing this move as part of the ongoing modernisation of our branch network. 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 local community into the future.

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 serving positions over longer opening hours. A wide range of Post Office products and services would be available. Customer satisfaction with these style of branches stands at 95 per cent.

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.
