Opened 1 May 2024

Results updated 10 Jul 2024

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



We’re proposing changes to service provision in your area as a result of our plans to close Manchester Directly Managed branch.

Our lease on the premises expiresin August 2024 and the landlord has served notice for us to vacate. Consequently, we have reviewed Post Office services in the local area. We believe there is enough provision of Post Office services to meet the needs of customers in the local area who currently use the Manchesterbranch,without the need for a direct replacement of this branch. The existing provision, in addition to our plans to advertise the opportunity to operate one of our Local style branches in the area, will provide Manchester branch customers with the access to the Post Office products and services they need. Additionally, as part of our continual review of provision across the network, we will monitor customer usage in the local area and look to provide additional services in future, if required.
