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



I am writing to let you know that we are proposing to move this branch to Sahota Boutique,  206 Soho Road, Handsworth, Birmingham B21 9LR.


As you may be aware, this branch has been operated on our behalf by a temporary agent since our contract with our former subpostmaster came to an end.  Whilst this arrangement has enabled us to maintain access to Post Office services to our customers in the area, this does mean that the current service is liable to close at short notice and for some time now we have been actively seeking a more secure solution that would enable us to retain services locally into the longer term.

I am, however, very pleased to advise you that, after working hard to identify a new agent with suitable premises at a nearby location, a new subpostmaster has been appointed.

What will this mean for customers?

  • Post Office services will be offered from a till on the retail counter in a modern open plan branch
  • Longer opening hours
  • The majority of Post Office products and services will still be available.

This change is part of a major programme of modernisation taking place across the Post Office network, the largest in the history of Post Office Ltd.  The Programme is underpinned by Government investment and will see up to 8,000 branches modernised and additional investment in over 3,000 community and outreach branches.
