PO branch will not be mov­ing

North Wales Weekly News - - NEWS -

POST Of­fice chiefs have scrapped plans to move a branch about 100 yards.

Post Of­fice Ltd had pro­posed switch­ing the counter from its cur­rent site on Mar­ket Street in Abergele to White­side’s con­ve­nience store.

The PO said it took into ac­count con­sul­ta­tion feed­back, politi­cians’ views and Cit­i­zens Ad­vice con­cerns.

Cl­wyd West AM Dar­ren Mil­lar, Cl­wyd West MP David Jones and mayor of Abergele Cllr Sam Row­lands are de­lighted.

Mr Mil­lar said: “The pro­pos­als would have led to a prom­i­nent town cen­tre build­ing be­com­ing va­cant and dif­fi­cul­ties in ac­cess for some cus­tomers.”

Mr Jones was glad the PO had lis­tened to the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple.

The new site would have been about 100 yards away, with lim­ited park­ing and a nar­row pave­ment.

Cllr Row­lands had started a pe­ti­tion with over 760 sig­na­tures.
