Acocks Green Post Office (Birmingham)

Volume 587: debated on Monday 3 November 2014

The petition is from 573 residents of Acocks Green.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of Acocks Green and customers of the Post Office in Acocks Green and others,

Declares that the Petitioners oppose the proposed move of Acocks Green’s Post Office branch from 1100 Warwick Road to 1131 Warwick Road; further that the proposed new location has fewer serving hatches, a significantly narrower pavement and, unlike the current location, no canopy above the pavement for when customers have to queue; and further that the Petitioners are concerned about the viability of the new host company and its store, and therefore the long term security of the branch.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to listen to calls for the Post Office to reject the current proposals for the movement of the Acocks Green Post Office and seek alternative, more appropriate proposals.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
