Wandsworth Bridge Road Post Office Set to Move Around the Corner

Six week consultation underway over move to premises less than 20 yards away


The Post Office is holding a six week long public consultation over plans to move its branch on the corner of Fulham's Hugon Road and Wandsworth Bridge Road to a new location - exactly 52 feet away at 308 Wandsworth Bridge Road.

This means instead of it being a standalone Post Office, it will be contained within Nilkanrai newsagents.

The consultation says: "We are proposing, with the Postmaster’s agreement, to move the above Post Office branch to a new location – 308 Wandsworth Bridge Road, Fulham, London, SW6 2UA. We are pleased to tell you that, if the move goes ahead, subject to consultation, it will change to one of our new local style branches."

The Post office says for customers, this will mean:

Post Office services will be offered from two tills on the retail counter in a modern open plan branch
Longer opening hours
The majority of Post Office products and services will still be available
Improved accessibility
This change is part of a major programme of modernisation 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.

The consultation is open until 21 March, and you can give your views on the move here.
