Union Street DY4 8QJ - 189208

Closed 26 Jan 2024

Opened 15 Dec 2023

Results updated 8 Feb 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: Unit 15, 12 Unity Walk, Tipton, DY4 8EZ, where it would continue to be operated by the existing postmaster as one of our main style branches, subject to consultation.

Why are we proposing this move?

The area in which the current branch is located is being redeveloped, and we have been actively working in the local community to find an alternative way of providing Post Office services to our customers. In this case, the postmaster has identified an opportunity to move this branch into an alternative new location nearby. This move would enable us to maintain Post Office services to this area and 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 stationery store with Union Street 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 Union Street Post Office would enable us to maintain a Post Office service to our customers in the local community.
