The popular parcel pickup service on Slindon Street has been closed by the Royal Mail. This is a major blow to residents who rely on the service for key deliveries, especially at Christmas.
Portsmouth Labour Leader Councillor Stephen Morgan expressed his disappointment with the decision:
“The Royal Mail’s delivery office on Slindon Street is a hugely popular and accessible service. I use the service regularly and residents have already raised their concerns with me about its loss.
With these changes to the postal service we see, yet again, the needs of the people in our city are taking second place.
We won the argument with the police and crime commissioner to safeguard a presence in the city centre, and now I want to work with the Post Office to see how the concerns of local people can be addressed”.
Portsmouth Labour will be working hard to protect the future of our postal service and campaigning to ensure the changes made do not have a negative impact on residents across our great city.
