We, the undersigned, call upon the Post Office Ltd to abandon plans to relocate or close Newhaven's Crown Post Office.
Closure would harm the town through the loss of valuable services provided by the Crown Post Office which include not just postal, but also banking facilities.
There are no other locations in the town as suitable and accessible as the current site. Newhaven has lost many amenities in recent years and we do not want to risk losing another.
Additionally, as a result of recent investment in the town centre, which is likely to significantly increase footfall in the town, we believe this proposal is both short-sighted and premature.
We would like the Post Office Ltd to work with Newhaven Town Council, Lewes District Council and other local organisations to maintain the current service at its current location.
