Katy Clark MP is urging constituents to get involved in a Post Office consultation affecting two local branches.
Ms Clark says a current Post Office review looks to ‘modernise’ services provided at the Central Avenue Post Office in Ardrossan and the Hayocks Road facility in Stevenston. While the Post Office indicates its review could recommend additional services being provided, the local MP has concerns some current provision could be removed if people don’t support their retention by responding to the ongoing consultation.
The Labour MP for North Ayrshire & Arran said the review “means the branches themselves [will be] refurbished and some new services provided, [but] there is also the possibility of certain services being stopped and so constituents may have to travel to other Post Offices for them.
“It will also result in these Post Offices being closed for at least two weeks at some point between November and January, so it is important that people who rely on the Post Office are made aware of this likely disruption. Local residents should take the opportunity to feed-back on the suggested changes and process.”
The Post Office review can be accessed online. To respond in relation to Central Avenue the branch code is 16184399: for Hayocks it is 15184399. Alternatively, the Post Office helpline is 08457 22 33 44.
