Plans put forward to restore services at Payhembury.
A public consultation is set to take place regarding proposals to re-open Post Office services at Payhembury.
Post Office Ltd made the announcement on Monday and has put forward plans to restore the branch as a hosted outreach service at the village’s communty run shop, Payhembury Provisions.
The branch closed for business in April 2010 when the subpostmaster resigned and the premises was withdrawn for Post Office use.
A spokesman for Post Office Ltd, Matt Walls, said: “Our priority is to safeguard Post Office services in the longer term and establishing this hosted service presents the best possible solution and will allow us to restore access to Post Office services in the Payhembury area.”
The service will be provided by a subpostmaster on Monday from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
The consultation period runs until August 23.
Submissions can be made to Post Office Ltd, c/o National Consultation Team, PO Box 1138, St Albans, AL1 9UN or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
