You can allready collect from post offices , they just need to get there act to gether and tell people .

There is a "small charge" for this. 70p according to Post Office website missed delivery section.

If that's the case, it will actually be a better solution for the majority of people - the current collection times at the sorting office are not very user friendly.

Thanks for that link Mark.

They key sentence is 'Customers in Bredbury and Marple will be able to collect any undeliverable mail from local post offices.'

If that's the case then I don't see much of a problem with it.

Been told both Marple and Bredbury sorting offices will be closing in January/February 2018 and moving into Stockport delivery office.

Looks like that's confirmed here: https://www.williamwragg.org.uk/news/william-wragg-expresses-disappointment-royal-mail-decision-close-local-delivery-offices

Visited the sorting office this morning to collect a parcel - it was really busy. This is not a complaint - I'm just pointing out what a useful convenient service it provides. It would be a real pain in the butt if we had to go to Stockport for this.

Anyone have an update on plans to close the office? I had intended to ask when I called in, but it was too busy!
No one knows sorting office were they are suposed to be going Stockport is not large enough ,most of it is used By Amazon sorters .

Maybe so, although my recollection from when the site appraisal was done a while back was that there were fundamental problems with the site (sloping, restricted, and difficult vehicle access, especially for the huge articulated trucks that supermarkets use) which made it basically unattractive to possible supermarket tenants.
The land was formerly used for housing which was demolished under slum clearance in the 1950s. "They" keep going on about the shortage of housing so why not use the land for affordable housing (or better still for council housing).

I think you're right unless the sorting office closes, this might instill a new dynamic if there is no need to compensate Royal Mail to end their lease.
