There has been some concern amongst residents in Southfields and West Hill about the future of the Post Office on Wimbledon Park Road. Justine has been working with Post Office Ltd to press them to ensure a continued provision and wanted to give you the latest update.
The Post Office has confirmed that they are committed to ensuring that customers continue to have a Post Office in the Southfields area and are conscious of the time restraints on the planning application for the existing site. The Post Office has also confirmed that an application for a new Postmaster to take on a new ‘Mains’ branch in Southfields is in progress at the moment.
Justine said ‘This has definitely not been a straight-forward process and although it has taken some time to get things moving, the Post Office has again reassured me of their commitment to ensure an ongoing Post Office provision in Southfields. I have met with the Post Office Ltd team a number of times in the past year and I have asked that they continue to provide me with regular updates going forwards’.
