The proposal: To move Post Office services away from the Woodcote Way shop to Conisboro Stores. Post Office services would be accessed at the same counter as currently sells groceries/lottery tickets/newspapers etc. There would not be a dedicated Post Office counter in Conisboro Stores.
Main benefit: Increased access to Post Office services as hours extended to Conisboro Stores opening times.
