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



We are proposing, with the Postmaster’s agreement, to move the above Post Office branch to a new location – Spar, 22b Winton Place, Tranent, EH33 1AE.  I’m pleased to tell you that, if the move goes ahead, subject to consultation, the new premises, which is currently empty, will undergo a furbishment to incorporate a convenience store and change to one of our new main style Post Office branches.

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. 

What will this mean for customers?

  • A modern open plan branch in newly refurbished premises
  • Longer opening hours
  • The same products and services with the addition a selection of on demand foreign currency
  • Selected Post Office services will also be available at the retail counter during shop opening hours
