Any changes to the Crown branches are operational matters for the Post Office. The announcement made by the business in January was to seek franchise partners to run branches in their communities. Where Post Office find a partner, communities will not lose a branch but it will relocate to a new store.

Post Office is continually reviewing its network to ensure it has the right branches in the right locations to deliver the best and most efficient service to its customers. This may lead to further changes to the Crown estate in due course.
