Have your say over post office proposals
MP wants residents to submit their opinions on move
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.”
