The decision on Post Office closures in the Bristol and Somerset area is due to be announced tomorrow (26th February). The initial plan will be published here, followed by a 6 week consultation period, then an announcement of the final plan for the area.
The consultation process is pretty short, so any local churches or other organisations need to be ready to respond to proposed closures with practical proposals for a local 'outreach' service, if that's going to be feasible in your village or neighbourhood.
The plan has now been published, you can see it here in full and there are links to 2 supporting documents on this page.
A reduction from 389 to 324 post offices, all to comply with 'minimum access' requirements.
77 branches supported which are the only local retailer, 100 are the only local access to cash.
93 out of 100 people whose local branch will close have another PO within a mile
7 branches to be replaced by outreach services:
Lydeard St. Lawrence
Branches earmarked for closure are on p22-4 of the report.
