Following 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: 8 Midland Road, Swadlincote, DE11 0AG, (Previously Discount Food Bargains Store).

Why are we proposing this move?

As you may be aware, this branch has been operated on our behalf by a temporary postmaster. Whilst this arrangement has enabled us to maintain access to Post Office services to our customers in the area, 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 the above Post Office from the new proposed premises nearby. The proposed premises, which is currently empty would undergo a full refurbishment to incorporate a stationery, cards, and confectionery store, with Swadlincote Post Office, and subject to consultation, it would continue to operate as one of our main style branches. We are confident that running a main style branch alongside a successful retail store is the most effective way to continue to provide a Post Office service to the local community into the future.

Our priority is to safeguard our services in the locality in the longer term and the relocation of Swadlincote Post Office would enable us to maintain Post Office services to our customers within the local community.
