Following a meeting with local Cllr Caroline Johnson, Chris Skidmore MP organised a roundtable discussion with a representative from the Post Office and other local Councillors, including the Chair of Emersons Green Town Council, Cllr Rich Nicholls.
At this meeting Chris and the local Councillors raised concern at the lack of Post Office facilities for residents in Emersons Green and the new Lyde Green development. They also expressed concern at the distances residents currently have to travel and the availability of services at these locations. Chris has since contacted the Council to request they explore sites on the new Lyde Green development.
Chris said, “I am concerned that some residents have to travel a considerable distance to use these facilities so I am keen to explore opportunities with the Post Office to ensure a suitable site can be found within Emersons or Lyde Green.”
“My priority is to have a site which is accessible and provides the services residents need. I will continue to work with local Councillors and representatives from the post office to ensure a site can be found as soon as possible.”
