Deeping St James post office could open seven days a week and for longer hours if a public consultation is successful.

The Post Office is proposing to relocate the store in Deeping St James to a different location in the village, 600 metres away.

Deeping St James Post Office which is currently located at 12 Church Street, is being considered for a move to a new location at the Premier Store in Rycroft Avenue, Deeping St James.

If the move goes ahead, subject to consultation the post office will chance to one of the new local style Post Office branches.

The change is part of a major programme of modernisations taking place across the Post Office network, the largest in the history of Post Office Ltd. The programme is underpinned by Government investment and will see up to 8,000 branches modernised and additional investment in over 3,000 community and outreach branches.

A public consultation will now take place to allow the local residents to tell the council what they think about the suitability of the proposed new location.

Residents have until May 21 to have their say and can freepost comments to Post Office Ltd, send them via e-mail to or call the Customer Helpline on 08457 223344.
