Results Updated 8 Aug 2018

Following local public consultation, the letter below confirms our final plans for the branch.



We're making some changes to Post Office service provision in the area which means that we are today beginning a 12-week public consultation on the closure of Leigh Park Directly Managed branch.

In July 2016 we announced that we were advertising for a franchise partner for Leigh Park branch because we needed to look at providing Post Office services in a different way in the Leigh Park area, enabling us to better secure our services in the community for the long term. When it comes to creating a sustainable network, there isn’t a one size fits all approach; each branch and community is different, and we need to consider all the options available to us. For example, as well as considering franchising we may also consider other options such as replacing a branch with one or more smaller branches in the area. 

Why We Are Consulting

We’re now starting a period of local public consultation and we’d like you to tell us what you think about access to Post Office services in the area following the closure.
