NOSTALGIA: Home to Portsmouth and a hero’s welcome

Have your say

A POST Office is proposing to relocate.

Postmaster Pranay Patel of Southsea Post Office plans to transfer his business from 94-96 Palmerston Road, to 73 Palmerston Road.

The new premises are empty and would undergo a refurbishment and change to one of the new main style Post Office branches.

Post Office services would be delivered from two modern serving positions – one full-screened and one open-plan. Opening hours would be Monday to Saturday, from 9am–5.30pm. This means there would be an extra 3.5 hours a week of service, including Saturday afternoon, for the convenience of customers.

Suzanne Richardson, regional network manager for the Post Office, said: ‘We are confident this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs.

‘This modernisation is part of a major investment programme and will secure future services.’

The Post Office is inviting interested parties to give their comments on the move in a six-week public consultation. During this time, Post Office Ltd welcomes feedback on any issues customers would like considered before a final decision is taken on this proposal. The consultation will close on June 2.

Submissions can be made by Freepost YOUR COMMENTS to Post Office Ltd, by email to, or by calling on 03457 22 33 44.

Customers can also share their views online through the questionnaire at, with the branch code 114937.
