PROPOSED MOVE FOR PEMBURY POST OFFICE

  • Move to Village News, 37 High Street, Pembury, TN2 4PH
  • Open seven days a week
  • Extra 15 hours a week
  • Modern open-plan retail environment
  • Six week public consultation

The Post Office is proposing to relocate Pembury Post Office to Village News, 37 High Street, Pembury, TN2 4PH.

Post Office services would be delivered from an open-plan till alongside the retail counter of the store.

Opening hours would be Monday – Saturday: 7am – 6pm; Sunday: 9am – 12 noon. This would be 15 extra hours of Post Office service a week including Sunday morning and earlier opening every day. This would make it more convenient for customers to visit.

Our partners and agents operate sub Post Office branches alongside their private retail business, and it is important that they make the very best use of their resources to ensure future sustainability of both their business and the Post Office service.

An opportunity has arisen for our postmaster, currently operating from 47 Hastings Road, Pembury, TN2 4PB, to incorporate Post Office services into their other local premises nearby with a convenience store also on site. Our partner firmly believes that the move will help safeguard the viability of their business, including the Post Office service.

The Post Office is now inviting customers and interested parties to give their comments on the move in a public consultation. During the 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 5 December 2017. 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 on 03457 22 33 44 or Textphone 03457 22 33 55.

Customers can also share their views online through the quick and easy questionnaire at postofficeviews.co.uk with the branch code 081948.
