1. Introduction

The Government has recognised that fewer people are using Post Office® branches, partly
because traditional services, including benefit payments and other services are now available in
other ways, such as online or directly through banks. It has concluded that the overall size and
shape of the network of Post Office® branches (“the Network”) needs to change.

In May 2007, following a national public consultation, the Government announced a range of
proposed measures to modernise and reshape the Network and put it on a more stable footing
for the future. A copy of the Government’s response to the national public consultation (“the
Response Document”) can be obtained at www.dti.gov.uk/consultations/page36024.html.

Post Office Ltd has now put in place a Network Change Programme (“the Programme”) to
implement the measures proposed by the Government. The Programme will involve the
compulsory compensated closure of up to 2,500 Post Office® branches (out of a current Network
of 14,300 branches), with the introduction of about 500 service points known as “Outreaches” to
mitigate the impact of the proposed closures. Compensation will be paid to those
subpostmasters whose branches are compulsorily closed under the Programme.

To support the necessary changes to the Network and put it on a more stable footing and to
support the reshaped Network of the future, the Government has proposed an investment of up
to £1.7bn as a funding package.
The majority of Post Office® branches - more than 80% - will not change as a result of the
Programme. Post Office Ltd is seeking to implement those changes that do take place as
efficiently and sensitively as possible.

One of the key ways in which Post Office Ltd will make sure that people continue to have the best
possible access to Post Office® services is by applying the minimum access criteria prescribed by
the Government in the Response Document:

Nationally:

•         99% of the UK population to be within 3 miles and 90% of the population to be within 1
          mile of their nearest Post Office® branch.

•         99% of the total population in deprived urban 1 areas across the UK to be within 1 mile of
          their nearest Post Office® branch.

•         95% of the total urban 2 population across the UK to be within 1 mile of their nearest Post
          Office® branch.

•         95% of the total rural 3 population across the UK to be within 3 miles of their nearest Post
          Office® branch.


In addition, for each individual postcode district:
1
  Deprived urban – The most disadvantaged urban parts of the UK based on the Indices of Multiple
Deprivation (top 15% Super Output Areas in England, 15% of Data Zones in Scotland and 30% of Super
Output Areas in Wales and Northern Ireland).
2
    Urban – A community with 10,000 or more inhabitants in a continuous built up area.
3
    Rural – A community not covered by the definition of Urban above.
                                                                                                         5
•      95% of the population of the postcode district to be within 6 miles of their nearest Post
       Office® branch.

Changes to the Network can only take place within the prescribed access criteria.

In order to deliver the changes set out in the Response Document, Post Office Ltd has divided the
UK into 47 areas (“Areas”). For each of these Areas Post Office Ltd will develop a local area plan
proposal (“Area Plan Proposal”) which will set out the changes that it proposes to make within it.
The Area Plan Proposal for Lancashire and Fylde with Southport has been developed and in this
booklet you will find information on the changes proposed for Lancashire and Fylde with
Southport. Full details of the Area Plan Proposal for Lancashire and Fylde with Southport are
available on our website www.postoffice.co.uk/networkchange or by contacting us at the address
given below.

When developing the Area Plan Proposal for Lancashire and Fylde with Southport, Post Office Ltd
analysed a number of factors. These included the proximity of the Post Office® branches
proposed for closure to other nearby branches, the number of customers currently using a
particular Post Office® branch, the size and ability of nearby branches to absorb extra customers,
and the commercial implications of any decision for Post Office Ltd.

Post Office Ltd has also taken into account obstacles such as rivers, mountains and valleys,
motorways and sea crossings to islands in order to avoid undue hardship to customers. In
addition, the availability of public transport, alternative access to key Post Office® services (such as
cash withdrawals, bill payments, mail services), local demographics and the impact on local
economies have all been considered. Post Office Ltd has sought information from a number of
external organisations and people, including subpostmasters, local authorities and regional
development agencies to assist with this process.
Postwatch, the independent consumer watchdog for postal services, has worked with us in
assessing the options for change during the period leading up to the publication of the Area Plan
Proposal. Post Office Ltd has also engaged with other stakeholders, including relevant MPs.

Local Public Consultation
Each Area Plan Proposal is subject to local public consultation to ensure that the views of local
people are taken into account before any final decisions are made by Post Office Ltd.

The local public consultation on the Area Plan Proposal for Lancashire and Fylde with Southport
will commence on 22nd January 2008.

The local public consultation will last for a period of six weeks and the closing date for feedback is
3rd March 2008. Please send your views and comments in writing regarding access to future Post
Office® services in this Area to the address detailed below (payment of postage is not required to
a Freepost address). Please note that your comments will not be kept confidential unless you
expressly ask us to do so by clearly marking them ‘In Confidence’.

2. The Area Plan Proposal for Lancashire and Fylde with Southport

Post Office Ltd is acutely aware of the concerns that changes – including closures – affecting Post
Office® branches in the Lancashire and Fylde with Southport area will cause. In fulfilling the
Government’s requirement to reduce the overall size of the Post Office® network (“the Network”)
– and to do so in a way which creates similar results across the UK as a whole, and ensures that no
group of inhabitants at an area level is overall significantly more adversely affected than any
other– we are proposing to retain a total of 269 Post Office® branches across the area, but to
close 59 existing branches. Six outreach service points will be established and these would use
innovative ways to continue to provide Post Office services in some areas where the existing
branch is proposed for closure.

If these proposed changes take place, Post Office Ltd will remain the largest retailer by network
size in the country, and will still have more branches open than the number of branches of major
banks and building societies combined. In this area, 99.6% of the population will see no change to
the branch they currently use or will remain within one mile of an alternative outlet.
At present the area’s 1.5 million residents are served by a total of 328 branches. Usage of Post
Office® branches is falling, in line with national trends, as more customers access services at other
places, make more use of the internet and have their Government benefits paid directly into bank
accounts.

This Area Plan Proposal supports achievement of the national accessibility criteria set by the
Government. It forms part of an overall reduction in the number of branches by up to 2,500 across
the UK and does not disproportionately affect the inhabitants of the area relative to other parts
of the UK.

In addition to meeting these criteria, when preparing this Area Plan Proposal Post Office Ltd has
considered factors relating to geography, the availability of local transport and alternative access
to key Post Office® services, local demographics and the impact on local economies. All branches
where changes are proposed have been fully assessed first hand by Post Office Ltd to ensure that
local factors have been considered during the development of the Area Plan Proposal.

Lancashire and Fylde with Southport communities are diverse in nature. With densely populated
urban areas around Lancaster, Blackpool, Southport, Preston and Blackburn. The area includes
some urban deprived areas, which contrast with woodland, countryside and coastal areas. 33% of
the population live in rural communities and 67% live in towns and cities. In order to meet the
Government's access criteria and avoid undue hardship, Post Office Ltd is proposing a future
Network in the area comprising 160 branches in towns and cities and 109 branches in rural areas.

The needs of those living in communities defined as deprived have been carefully considered in
this Area Plan Proposal, reflecting the specific national criteria set by the Government to give
greater safeguards on the accessibility of branches in these communities. Some 18.5% of the
area’s total population live in deprived communities. This proposal for future Network provision in
Lancashire and Fylde with Southport provides for 46 of the total number of remaining branches
being located in urban deprived communities.

Post Office Ltd has engaged with various stakeholders when preparing this Area Plan Proposal.
We have consulted with Postwatch, the independent consumer watchdog for postal services and
we have asked all local authorities within the Lancashire and Fylde with Southport area to provide
information and views relevant to the factors which we are able to consider. Our aim throughout
has been to minimise the impact, as far as possible, on our customers and to produce the most
effective overall proposal for the future.

                                                                                                    7
In our conversations with stakeholders we have been made aware of regeneration plans affecting
areas within the overall proposal and have taken these into consideration when constructing the
Area Plan Proposal. Information has been received from Blackpool Borough Council, Rossendale
Borough Council, Lancaster City Council, Lancashire County Council, Preston City Council, West
Lancashire District Council, South Ribble Borough Council, Chorley Borough Council and Hyndburn
Borough Council who have made us aware of their regeneration and development plans.

Lancaster City Council, Rossendale Borough Council, Lancashire County Council and West
Lancashire District Council have also made us aware of proposed new settlements. Lancaster City
Council, West Lancashire District Council, Preston City Council, South Ribble Borough Council and
Lancashire County Council have made us aware of major road schemes.

Lancaster City Council, Lancashire County Council, Preston City Council, South Ribble Borough
Council and Chorley Borough Council have also made us aware of public transport changes in
their areas. Our proposed Network for Lancashire and Fylde with Southport area takes account of
the locations affected by these and other schemes, their likely implementation timescales, and
has regard to the needs of the communities affected by these changes. We will keep provision
under review should demand increase beyond anticipated levels in the future.

Whilst stakeholders have advised Post Office Ltd of major road schemes, none of these would
materially change the accessibility to branches for particular communities. Similarly, the input
that we have received regarding public transport provision does not suggest any proposed
reduction in current provision which could leave branches significantly less accessible for
particular communities or make it more difficult for customers to access alternative branches
than at present.

In finalising the Area Plan Proposal all branches were carefully considered against the
Government’s minimum access criteria, which Post Office Ltd must meet. Due regard has been
given to the other factors that we must consider. As those factors were reviewed and as
information from stakeholders was considered and assessed 12.5% of the initial Area Plan
Proposal has been changed

Future service provision:

The Area Plan Proposal envisages a Post Office® Network of 269 branches in the Lancashire and
Fylde with Southport area, which ensures that Post Office Ltd would comply with the minimum
access criteria set by the Government. For 90% of customers this would mean no change to the
Post Office® branch that they currently use.

The network now proposed for Lancashire and Fylde with Southport continues to offer better
access to services than that of any similar organisation, while accepting the Government’s
decision to reduce overall branch numbers. Subject to the Government’s overriding criteria, we
have considered geography, transport provision, demographics and local economic impact where
appropriate. We are pleased to maintain 37 branches that support the only essential retailer in
their community and 63 that provide the only access to cash in a particular community.

The Area Plan Proposal includes provision of Post Office services through innovative outreach
solutions at six locations. In each instance, the outreach solution would be located within the
same community as an existing Post Office branch and would provide Post Office services for a
designated number of hours per week. Possible types of outreach service in the Lancashire and
Fylde with Southport area could include a hosted service operated within third party premises for
restricted hours each week or a partner service within the premises of a local business (such as a
pub landlord).

                                                                                                    8
Outreach services are proposed in Chipping, Bashall Eaves, Bolton By Bowland, Glasson Dock,
Calder Vale and Quernmore.

Post Office Ltd understands the importance of its role in both urban and rural communities and is
keen to continue to provide access to services for as many customers in as many of these
communities as possible. We have also considered the relative convenience of alternative
branches for those customers whose closest branch is proposed for closure. Of the 10% of
customers who use a branch that will close, 9.4% would have access to Post Office® services within
one mile as measured by road distance (3.4% being within half a mile of their nearest alternative).
In total, 99.6% of the population will either see no change, or will be within one mile of an
alternative branch.

Next steps….
During the local public consultation, which will last for a period of six weeks, we will seek views on
the proposed future service provision as outlined in this Area Plan Proposal.
Subject to the conclusion of the local public consultation period and after consideration of
feedback received, no changes would be implemented before April 2008.

Post Office Ltd is at a crucial point. Customer numbers are falling, customer habits are changing
and many of our traditional services are available elsewhere. It is essential that the changes,
which include a reduction in the number of branches, be made if the Network is to have a
sustainable future. We therefore welcome your views and comments regarding access to future
Post Office® services in this area. In particular we ask for your views on accessibility to the nearest
Post Office® branch.

The consumer watchdog

Postwatch is the independent watchdog for postal services, created by the Postal Services Act
2000. Postwatch is working with Post Office Ltd and local communities throughout the
programme to help secure the best possible outcome for customers.

What Postwatch will do

Postwatch operates through nine regional and national committees across the UK. Postwatch’s
role during the programme – prescribed by government - is to scrutinise Post Office Ltd’s
proposals and give feedback, ensure local consultations are meaningful, and that Post Office Ltd’s
decisions are sensible and in line with government criteria.

Each Postwatch regional office investigates Post Office Ltd’s closure proposals. Postwatch receives
area plans in advance of public consultation, allowing the time to examine proposals, and Post
Office Ltd the chance to refine their proposals before going to public consultation.

Once public consultation is underway, Postwatch works to raise awareness of local consultations,
and encourage participation. Postwatch will also work to ensure the minimum access criteria set
out by the government are maintained.
Where Postwatch thinks proposals are unsatisfactory, they will work with local communities and
Post Office Ltd to address these problems. There is an agreed review mechanism between
Postwatch and Post Office Ltd for such instances. It is important to note that Postwatch does not
have a power of veto on Post Office Ltd’s decisions.

Further information

Postwatch and Post Office Ltd have agreed a Memorandum of Understanding, which sets out in
detail the role Postwatch will play in the Programme. This is available on the Postwatch website at
www.postwatch.co.uk.




                                                                                                10
4. Proposed Outreach Service Points

Outreach service is an innovative way to continue to provide Post Office® services in some areas
where we may need to close a Post Office® branch. The outreach service will be located within the
same community as the current Post Office® branch and provide Post Office® services for a
designated number of hours per week.

There are four possible types of outreach service:

The Mobile Service is a travelling Post Office® situated within a van operated by the core
subpostmaster or his assistants that will visit small communities at set times and days each week
to deliver certain Post Office® products and services to customers.

The Hosted Service is a fixed site Post Office® branch from which the core subpostmaster or his
assistants transact certain Post Office® products and services during restricted hours each week.
The premises are owned by a third party, for example, a shop or community centre.
The Partner Service is a fixed site Post Office® where a local partner (such as a pub landlord),
appointed by the core subpostmaster, transacts certain Post Office® products and services from
the partner’s own premises during the opening hours of the partner’s business.

The Home Service is a service for very small communities whereby the core subpostmaster
delivers a reduced range of Post Office® products and services which are ordered over the
telephone by customers. The products may either be delivered to the customer’s home or at a
local drop-in session. There will not be a physical Post Office® building in the community.

For each of these services an established subpostmaster (known as the “core” subpostmaster) will
travel into a nearby community to provide a local Post Office® service; in addition to running their
own Post Office® branch.

Over the past 18 months, 70 Outreach access points have been trialled. These services have been
provided by 28 core branches, and this also draws on our experience of successfully operating over
250 ‘satellite’ branches since 2000.
Post Office Ltd is proposing to introduce a number of Outreach service points as part of this Area
Plan and is actively working to develop suitable proposals for the branches proposed for
replacement Outreach services detailed within this booklet.

We would therefore like to seek views from our customers and their representatives on the Hosted
Services proposed for Chipping, Bashall Eaves, Bolton By Bowland, Glasson Dock, Calder Vale and
Quernmore. Full details of the proposed new services are provided overleaf.
