Woodthorpe YO24 2RQ - 267349

Closed 18 Sep 2019

Opened 31 Jul 2019

Results Updated 31 Oct 2019

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



We are proposing to re-open the above Post Office branch in the new location – Martin McColls, 51 Moorcroft Road, Woodthorpe, York, YO24 2RQ on Friday 20 September 2019 and it would change to one of our new local style branches. The previous branch closed in May 2019 therefore we had to identify an alternative location to continue to offer Post Office services to the local community.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services at a low-screened, open-plan, modern serving point that’s part of the retail counter. Working with the postmaster, we’d adapt the current store layout, fixtures and fittings to accommodate the Post Office till if needed. The branch would offer a wide range of Post Office products and services over longer opening hours, so customers can access their Post Office when it’s convenient. Customer satisfaction with local style branches stands at 96 per cent, and nearly 20 per cent of local branch customers visit outside traditional opening hours.


Why We Are Consulting

We’re carrying out a local public consultation and we’d like your views on the proposal. We welcome feedback and comments that can help inform our plans.

What Happens Next

Thank you for considering our proposal. We will take into account any information and feedback we receive as we finalise our plans for the new branch.
