Have your say on the proposed relocation of Farnham Post Office.
The Post Office would like to hear your views on the proposed move from 107 West Street, Farnham to the WH Smith store at 14, The Borough, Farnham.
Members of the public and local businesses are being encouraged to have their say by replying directly to the Post Office.
The consultations closes on 6 March 2019.
More information about the proposal
If the move goes ahead, the branch will be run by WHSmith High Street Ltd, with extended opening hours including Saturday afternoons and Sundays.
The change of management of the branch will be to one that is operated by a retail partner and as it is a commercial decision for Post Office Ltd, they are not seeking feedback on this aspect of the change.
The Post Office is looking for feedback and comments that can help inform plans, particularly on the following areas:
- How easy is it to get to the proposed new location?
- Are the new premises easy for you to get into and are they easily accessible once inside?
- Are there any other local community issues which you believe could be affected by or affect the proposed move?
- If the move were to proceed is there anything we could do to make it easier for customers?
As part of the consultation, they will also be holding a ‘customer forum’ event designed to allow customers or stakeholders the opportunity to come along and ask questions – we understand a date will be publicised soon.
