MP for East Dunbartonshire Jo Swinson has submitted her response to the Post Office’s consultation, in support of the proposed new premises at the Lifestyle Express on Auchinloch Road.
The old branch 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.
Commenting, Jo said:
“I am pleased to support the proposals for the re-opening of the Lenzie Post Office. The town has been without a Post Office for too long, and finding new premises has not been an easy process, so this is a very welcome development.
“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.
“After the consultation has closed, Post Office officials must work as quickly as possible to ensure the prompt restoration of post office services in Lenzie.”
