Merseyside and Cheshire PO closures announced

No primary category set

The Post Office have announced the next round of branch closures, with the loss of 60 POs in Merseyside, the Wirral and Cheshire. Originally 65 branches had been slated for closure, but after six weeks of public consultation, three won a reprieve, and two are undergoing a further consultation process. In addition, six branches are to be replaced with “outreach” services: that is, Post Offices based in pubs or shops, or mobile services.

Post Offices bosses claim that the new plans mean that 99% of the population will still be within a mile of an alternative PO.

The full list of affected branches is available as a pdf.
