Plans have been drawn up which would see Dyce Post Office move a short distance from its current location and be co-located within a Premier Store at the former Clydesdale Bank building. The move would see opening hours for the Post Office extended to seven days per week between 6.00am and 10.00pm.
Post Office management is now seeking the views of Dyce residents and customers as part of a consultation.
Commenting, Richard Thomson MP said:
“Post Offices are a vital part of our local communities, which I believe need to be retained and supported.
“Residents are being urged to make their views known on the proposals, which are slated for February next year, which include two serving positions.
“Increasingly, we are seeing free-to-use cash machines being removed when the banks close branches. Restricting access to cash in this way is not acceptable and local Post Offices provide a vital service in letting people have access to cash when the banks have all but given up on providing a local service.
“With Dyce having lost three of its four banks in recent times, the Post Office’s role at the heart of the community it serves is more important than ever and I would encourage people to respond to the consultation with their support for local Post Office services.”
