East Dunbartonshire MP Jo Swinson has welcomed the progress being made to secure a new Post Office in Lenzie.
The old post office closed temporarily in February 2017 and since her election in June, Jo has repeatedly pressed Post Office executives to find a solution to provide a post office in the Lenzie community. The new Post Office is proposed to be at the Lifestyle Express on Auchinloch Road.
A public consultation on the new location is open until Wednesday 23rd May 2018 and can be found at https://www.postofficeviews.co.uk/national-consultation-team/lenzie-g66-4lq-243855/.
Commenting on the news, Jo Swinson said:
“Residents in Lenzie have been without a post office for more than a year. Having repeatedly met with Post Office representatives to discuss the importance of securing a new site as quickly as possible, it’s great to see progress being made on this.
“It has been particularly difficult for those unable to travel easily to the Kirkintilloch branch so the new Auchinloch Road location will make a big difference to the local community.
“I encourage residents to take part in the consultation and help ensure a long-term future for the Post Office in Lenzie.”
