Torrington’s Post Office is proposing to move next year to the Spar store further down the high street.

The proposals would see the Post Office relocate from 7 High Street to Gilletts Spar at 13 High Street.

It would be a new-style local branch with Post Office service provided from two open-plan counters alongside the retail counter of the convenience store.

Opening hours would be Monday - Sunday: 8am – 8pm, which is an extra 52 hours a week on top of its current opening hours.

The branch would open significantly earlier and would close later every day.

A consultation is being held on the move, with interested parties able to comment until January 25.
