Plans have been drawn up to modernise a post office.

The Post Office is proposing to create a modern open-plan local-style branch at the office in Nile Street Post Office, North Shields.

Customers are now being given a chance to have their say on the plans, which also include extended opening hours with the branch open from 8am to 5.30pm, Monday to Saturday.

Post Office area manager Anne Clark said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in North Shields and we are confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.

“This modernisation is part of a major investment programme.”

The final date for submissions is November 17.
