Opened 30 Apr 2024

Results updated 16 Jul 2024

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: 783 London Road, Trent Vale, ST4 5NZ, where it would continue to operate as one of our main style branches, subject to consultation.

Why are we proposing this move?

As you may be aware, our postmaster’s operate Post Office branches alongside their private retail business, and it is important that they make the very best use of their resources to ensure future sustainability of both their business and the Post Office service. In this case, the postmaster has identified an opportunity to move this branch into an alternative new location to continue to offer Post Office services to the local community.

The proposed premises, which is currently empty, would undergo a full refurbishment to incorporate a cards and convenience store with Trent Vale Post Office. The postmaster firmly believes that the move will help to secure continued access to Post Office services locally, as well as supporting the viability of their business. Our priority is to safeguard our services in the locality in the longer term and the relocation of Trent Vale Post Office would enable us to maintain a Post Office service to our customers in the local community.
