The Post Office is asking members of the public for their views on plans to move one of its branches a short distance in Fulham.

It is proposing moving its branch 16 metres along the road from 314 Wandsworth Bridge Road to 308 Wandsworth Bridge Road.

A six-week consultation has launched and will close on March 21.

The new branch would open seven days a week and increase trading hours to 98 hours a week.

Should the move go ahead, the branch would open from 7am – 9pm daily, giving users an extra 51 hours and 30 minutes of Post Office service every week.

The proposed move, in agreement with the current postmaster, is part of major modernisation programme across the Post Office network designed to make it easier for customers to do business, through longer opening hours and modern open plan environments.

Suzanne Richardson, regional manager, said: “We are making it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents."
