Sutton residents are being invited to have their say on the relocation of a former Post Office in the town.

The Post Office is proposing to move Leamington Drive Post Office, which closed in 2010, from its previous location to create a new style open-plan branch with significantly extended opening hours for customers.

The proposed new location for the branch is the Convenience Store at 6 Leamington Buildings on Leamington Drive and is 25 metres from its former site.

The move is part of major modernisation programme across the Post Office network designed to make it easier for customers to do business, through longer opening hours and modern open plan environments.

The new Leamington Drive Post Office would have an open plan counter position and would be open between 8am to 10pm Monday to Saturday and noon to 10pm on Sunday, offering customers an extra 58 hours a week to access Post Office products and services.

Simon Drinkwater, Post Office Regional Network Manager for Central England, said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Sutton in Ashfield and we are confident that this new modern branch will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.

“The modernisation is part of a major investment programme to convert the Post Office network to new-style branches and this investment, the largest in the history of the Post Office, makes a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”
