Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Strat­ton Wil­liams

Calls have been made for peo­ple to have their say on plans to re­lo­cate Cam­bus­lang Post Of­fice.

It is set to move from Cam­bus­lang Gate to the Su­per Save store at 36 Main Street as they aim to im­prove the ser­vices of­fered to the public.

Mar­garet Ferrier, MP for Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang, wants peo­ple to sub­mit to Post Of­fice Views, their opin­ions re­gard­ing the planned move.

The new Post Of­fice will mod­ernise the town’s branch, in­crease open­ing hours on a Satur­day, whilst re­tain­ing the same prod­ucts and ser­vices which they cur­rently of­fer.

Fol­low­ing the re­cent Gil­bert­feld branch con­sul­ta­tion pre­vi­ously re­ported in the Ruther­glen Re­former, these changes are part of a pro­gramme of in­vest­ment and trans­for­ma­tion tak­ing place across the whole Post Of­fice net­work.

A six-week con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod is now un­der way.

Mar­garet Fer r ier said: “These plans are a welcome an­nounce­ment for the Cam­bus­lang area. This in­vest­ment from the Post Of­fice is a clear in­di­ca­tor that they will op­er­ate in the area for the fore­see­able fu­ture. The new pro­pos­als will en­sure that res­i­dents and busi­nesses in the Cam­bus­lang area will re­tain a cru­cial lo­cal ser­vice.

“I would en­cour­age all of my con­stituents in the area to con­trib­ute to the pro­pos­als by sub­mit­ting their com­ments to Post Of­fice Views be­fore the dead­line of Novem­ber 20.”

The Post Of­fice has been based in Cam­bus­lang Gate tem­po­rar­ily since abestos was found in the Scot­mid store it was pre­vi­ously based in back in Novem­ber 2012. Scot­mid an­nounced in June of last year they were pulling out of the Post Of­fice.

A spokesman for the Post Of­fice said: “Our con­sul­ta­tion is about cre­at­ing a new per­ma­nent home for Cam­bus­lang Post Of­fice.”
