East Barnet Post Office – Consultation on new premises

The Post Office is consulting on moving the East Barnet Post Office.

It is being proposed that the Post Office is moved from 285 East Barnet Road to 265 East Barnet Road. They are proposing to open the new shop seven days a week and for longer hours. These are 05.30 to 20.00 Monday to Saturday and 06.00 to 16.00 on a Sunday.

The new site will have step free access, which the old site does not.

You can have your say by emailing comments@postoffice.co.uk, writing to Freepost Your Comments or by calling 08457 22 33 44

Consultation closes on the 19th February.

    Seems a good solution to the Village keeping a post office

  2. Josie says:

    Seriously? That seems to be incredible opening hours for a post office. However, is it the same unhelpful owners?

  3. Oliver Stone says:

    Think it is a good idea to move it. Hopefully this will improve the existing level of service

  4. Marion Firth says:

    The new position is that where the Homecare (I think it was called) shop was? I do hope when they are kitting it out it is a bit more exciting than the current premises. They need to look at the post office in High Barnet and Whetstone for ideas of how to make the most of it.

  5. Susan McCormack says:

    I agree with Marion the old Post Office certainly did not make much effort! If it is the old Homecare Centre – surely room for much more community services?

    I was at the Post Office today and I was told that the plan is to have a post office counter in McKinnons, the (excellent) ‘paper’ shop at 285 East Barnet Road. I think that is a good idea that should work well, but I also feel rather sad because if you look at old photos of the village it seems that the post office has always been on the corner of Jackson Road.

  7. Samantha says:

    Think anything is better than what we have now. Nothing in it and not exactly the most customer driven staff working in there. I know a lot of people who have abandoned it and take their business elsewhere

  8. Gerard says:

    It is about time something was done about the Post Office in East Barnet, I have only used it twice and that was two times too many.
