WESTON Town Council has ‘welcomed’ a proposed new Post Office at the site of a former Indian restaurant.

The old Regent Street Post Office is looking to move to the empty Uddins premises in Alexandra Parade.

Speaking at a council meeting on Monday, the town clerk Malcolm Nicholson said: “It will probably be as accessible or inaccessible as the old one but will hopefully provide the town with a better main Post Office. This is clearly important to everybody.”

The Regent Street Post Office went through a period of uncertainty at the start of the year when it closed on several occasions, due to an ongoing contractual dispute with the landlord.

The town council policy and finance chairman Peter Crew said: “I think we should welcome it. The open close, open close was becoming a saga. I think this is a big building so it is going to be an improvement.

“I think we should give them our best wishes and welcome them.”

And fellow committee member Robert Payne said: “This has the potential to be a very good Post Office if they do it properly.”

The Post Office has operated in Regent Street since 2010.
