"I’ve taken a look at the emerging Local Plan. This is effectively the bible for sites which are likely to come up and, sure enough, Hampton Delivery Office is included.
For avoidance of doubt, I want the delivery office to stay but if Royal…"
"There is also a charge. I just got a card from RM today as I missed the post, it offers Hampton Post Office but for a fee. I can see in future one would just have to agree re-delivery as there is no way I am wasting all that time and fuel flogging…"
"But surely a better option than 20 minute car journeys for this that have cars and multiple buses for those that don't. They are already responsible for security of our post from the minute we drop stuff with then so think that's really a…"
"The PO in Hampton is served by two people who seem to be rather unpleasant most of the time. The shop is already crowded. How are they going to store private mail safely and will collecting it become as efficient as the folk at the sorting office?"
"Hi Jon, most of the mergers (Isleworth have merged with Brentford and Esher with East Molesey as examples) have been with offices that were close to each other to start with, so customers don't have to travel too far to the callers office,…"
"Teddington has train and bus options and is closer. If it's going to move then something on the main rail and bus links would be best. But then I do agree, it's still going to be harder to get to. RM are going to see much more re-delivery…"
"Colin, have you seen options for collection of parcels in local Post Offices or other even other sorting offices when this has happened in other areas? Transport to Ashford is really not good where as at least Teddington or better the local…"
"I am a postman at Hampton delivery office and was only told of this today! (Wednesday) our cwu union rep was here today to say that they will do all they can to stop this crazy idea, The whole thing is money led and after privatisation this…"
"Oh, my goodness. This is a joke. I love that it's apparently going to be "affordable housing" - as if! We all know it won't be affordable - it will be the same as all property in Hampton. I'm so disappointed. I hope Royal…"
A local collection point is vital. There are obvious security issues which arise relating to storage of personal and business mail - however the obvious answer would appear to be the local post office if this local resource…"
Hi councillor. Glad you could join (as our 50th member). We have been going since April and I hope we will continue to keep growing. The idea is that people will use this site for a variety of things but some of that will be things like the pavements issue! Many thanks for your contribution.
