Results Updated 4 Nov 2020

Following the local public engagement, the poster below confirms our final plans for the branch.



We are delighted to let you know that following the temporary closure of Old Heath Post Office we will be re-opening the branch on Tuesday 6 October 2020. This will be in a new location - The Hythe Pharmacy, 2 Hythe Quay, Colchester, CO2 8JB, where it will be known as Hythe Quay Post Office.      


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.  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.



We have provided posters for display in the new location to let customers know the good news. 

We are keen to restore services to this community as soon as possible so we are now progressing with these plans. However, we would welcome suggestions about specific aspects of the change such as access arrangements and the internal layout.

What Happens Next

Thank you for your support in restoring the Post Office service in your local area.
