Neath MP Peter Hain has urged Trebanos residents to have their say on the location of the local Post Office. Under plans proposed by Post Office Limited the local office will move to Trebanos Service Station and will change to a new local style branch.
The proposals are currently out to six week consultation which will end on 27th January 2014 with the proposed changes set to take place in March 2014 subject to the consultation and the appointment of a new operator.
Mr Hain is calling on residents to make their views known by taking part in the consultation, ‘It is vital that we keep the Post Office in Trebanos as many people rely on it for collecting their pension, paying their bills or picking up stamps. But it is important that residents contribute to the consultation to ensure the best outcome is achieved. Is this the only way to maintain the Post Office? Are there advantages or disadvantages in co-locating with the Service Station? How suitable are the new premises? These are all points that need to be addressed.’
