THE Post Office is proposing to move the Gorse Hill branch from its current location to create a modern open-plan local branch with extended opening hours for customers.

The proposed new location for the branch is Co-operative Retail Services Ltd, 118 Cricklade Road – just 125 metres from its current site at 90 Cricklade Road.

The Post Office is inviting customers and interested parties to give their comments in a six-week public consultation.

It is part of major modernisation programme across the Post Office network designed to make it easier for customers to do business.

The consultation will close on March 7.
