    22 September 2014

    PROPOSED NEW LOCATION FOR BOROUGH GREEN POST OFFICE AND LONGER HOURS
    • Move to Nisa, 50 – 54 High Street, Borough Green, Sevenoaks, TN15 8BJ
    • Opening hours extended by 45 hours a week
    • Modern open-plan retail environment
    • Access to Post Office® services available seven days a week
    • Wide range of Post Office® services available
    • Six-week public consultation
    The Post Office is proposing to relocate Borough Green Post Office to a new location where it will open as a modern open-plan local-style branch with significantly longer opening hours.

    The proposed new location is Nisa, 50 – 54 High Street, Borough Green, Sevenoaks, TN15 8BJ, which is 350 metres from its current site at 70 Western Road, Borough Green, Sevenoaks, TN15 8AH.

    Post Office local is a new concept for delivering Post Office services and the new Borough Green branch would offer Post Office products and services from an open plan till at the shop counter during shop opening hours instead of from a separate screened counter.

    Should the move go ahead, the branch would open from 8am – 9pm Monday to Sunday. This offers customers an extra 45 hours of Post Office services every week, including all day Sunday and Saturday afternoon. The branch would also open earlier and close much later every day.

    The proposed 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. This would be with the current postmaster’s agreement.

    Will Russell, Regional Manager said:
    The Post Office is now inviting customers and interested parties to give their comments on the move in a six week public consultation. Post Office Ltd welcomes feedback on any issues customers would like considered before a final decision is taken on this proposal. The consultation will close on 31 October 2014. Submissions can be made during the consultation by Freepost YOUR COMMENTS to Post Office Ltd, via email to comments@postoffice.co.uk, via the Customer Helpline: 08457 22 33 44 or Textphone 08457 22 33 55.

    Customers can also share their views on the proposed move through a new easy and convenient online questionnairepostofficeviews.co.uk – branch code 11394899
