Royal Mail's plan to move East Croydon parcel collection office out of the town centre is not acceptable
Royal Mail are planning to sell their site next to East Croydon station. They’ve submitted a planning application for a mixed-use scheme with a small supermarket on the ground floor and 200 homes above.
The current eyesore could certainly do with being redeveloped but there is a flaw: they are proposing moving the Parcel Collection Office to the Wandle Park Trading Estate on Factory Lane. This is not acceptable - it’s much less accessible for anyone who doesn’t own a car.
I have contacted Royal Mail to make it clear that if they want to redevelop their current site, they need to find an alternative site in the town centre for the Parcel Collection Office. I would strongly encourage you to do so too by emailing James Mitchell.
