Newbury Post Office set to relocate

NEWBURY Post Office could be leaving its current building in Cheap Street after 120 years to a new home in a town centre shop. 

The post office insists there would be no job losses or redundancies and opening hours would also stay the same if the proposals were to go ahead.

It is unclear what would happen to the Victorian Grade II-listed building, which opened in November 1896.

If approved, the move is expected to take place in March 2017. A six-week public consultation, which started yesterday, will take place first.

    yeah lets F*&^ up Newbury even more. WBC you have completely destroyed Newbury's town centre. So many newburians have left because of the constant changing and ruining of it all. I would be absolutely appalled to see you crush another old old business. The business does not need to move at all. As for placing it inside another business/shop its ridiculous. just leave our poor town alone!!! "furious"
