The current high street branch at 56 West Street could be moved to a vacant unit straddling 23 and 25 Market Parade as it is taken over by a new postmaster. 

Bosses say the switch would mean more retail services and have proposed the new site undergoes a full refit, including the installation of a stationary shop. 

If a move goes ahead the new ‘main’ branch would have five serving positions – two screened, two open-plan – and a Post Office serving point alongside the retail counter.
