Colinton Mains Drive EH13 9BJ - 124824

Closed 12 Jun 2019

Opened 1 May 2019

Results Updated 6 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 – U Save, 90 Colinton Mains Drive, Edinburgh, EH13 9BJ.

 Why are we moving?

 As you may be aware, the above branch is currently operated on our behalf by a temporary agent. I am pleased to confirm that the new permanent agent has been appointed and intends to relocate this Post Office to their convenience store nearby.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services at a low-screened, open-plan, modern serving point 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 over longer opening hours, so customers can access their Post Office when it’s convenient. 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.


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.
