Ipplepen TQ12 5RH - 244552

Closed 25 Oct 2022

Opened 13 Sep 2022

Results updated 16 Nov 2022

Following the 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 - Spar, Totnes Road, Ipplepen, Newton Abbot, TQ12 5TN.

Why are we moving?

The current postmaster has resigned and the premises will no longer be available for Post Office use. We have therefore had to identify an alternative location to continue to offer Post Office services to the local community.

We are pleased to inform you that a new agent has been appointed to operate Ipplepen Post Office from the above new location, subject to consultation.

We’d like your help

We’re now starting a period of local public consultation and your feedback is important to us as it will help to inform our decision. For more details of the proposed services and accessibility, please see the branch information summary later in this consultation document.

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. The Post Office would offer products and services over longer opening hours so customers can access their branch when it’s convenient. Customer satisfaction with local style branches is high, and many customers visit outside traditional opening hours.


Why your views matter

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. In this survey we will be asking specific questions related to the following areas:

  • Getting to the proposed location (Question 4)
  • Getting into the proposed location (Question 5)
  • Inside the proposed location (Question 6)
  • Other feedback on our proposal (Questions 7 - 9)

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.
