Ten Lib Dem councillors have called for the Royal Mail to ask customers their thoughts about the planned closure of the Muswell Hill delivery office.
The letter, authored by Fortis Green councillor Justin Hinchcliffe and sent to Royal Mail CEO Rico Black, said they are “alarmed” to hear it is consulting on the delivery office in Muswell Hill Broadway.
They say: “We understand [...] this particular consultation is only open to staff. Why are users of this much-used delivery office being excluded?
“We are not only asking you to record your own opposition to this bizarre plan, but to formally open up this consultation to include users, customers and residents.”
The former delivery office in Hornsey closed three years ago and the Muswell Hill office is the last in the west of the borough. If closure goes ahead, the nearest will be in Wood Green, two bus journeys from Muswell Hill.
