Lake Macquarie to fight post office closures

Lake Macquarie City Council has supported a Mayoral Minute seeking to reverse Australia Post’s decision to close Windale Post Office.

“We need to ensure the people of Windale have access to services and facilities that cater to everyone and promote community-connectivity,” said Mayor, Kay Fraser.

The Council has resolved to write to the CEO of Australia Post requesting a reversal of the decision; write to the Minister for Finance and Minister for Communication; and also seek a meeting with senior Australia Post management to discuss other planned closures.

The Windale outlet is due to close on 17 June, while Blacksmiths Post office, which also in the Lake Macquarie LGA, is due to close on 2 July.

In recent months, post offices in nearby Elermore Vale, Glendale, Lambton and Lochinvar have also closed.
