RESIDENTS are being urged to air their views on plans to move a post office.

People living in Bryn are being consulted on a proposal to move the branch on Old Road to within the Thorougoods convenience store a few hundred yards down the same street.

Ward councillors are urging those who would be affected to ensure they do not pass up the chance to have their voices heard.

Coun Nathan Murray, Labour member for Bryn ward, said: “I’m trying to remain open-minded about this but there are certainly some advantages. There will be longer opening hours which could help people considering we now live in a 24/7 society, there will be more access for disabled people and being in a convenience store might make it more convenience for people as they can shop at the same time.

“We are also grateful the proposal is for the post office to stay in Bryn because up and down the country post offices are closing, especially in more rural areas.

“However, I understand people will have questions about this so my ward colleagues and I are encouraging them to give their views and fill out a consultation.”

The consultation will close on August 20 with the move planned for either October or November. To take part in the consultation, visit www.postofficeviews.co.uk and enter the branch code 30640699.
