Consultation Team Took Notice

I am so pleased to hear that the news about Warley Hill post office is true and the decision has been made to keep it open.The decision paper on the Post Office website shows that the Post Office consultation team took notice of the points I made to them in my objection letter regarding the wrong address (it was listed as Warley Road not Warley Hill) and the fact that it is not level terrain to the town centre as they claimed. These issues were clearly fundamental to the final decision.

Warley Hill post office is a crucial part of Brentwood West and Warley and essential for all the residents who live in the area, particularly the elderly, those with young children, and disabled people, many of whom wrote to me and helped me to prove the case to keep it open.

I'd like to thank the Post Office consultation team for listening and the hundreds of people who signed our petition. This has given us some real Christmas cheer in the local community!
