The public is being asked to weigh in on plans to relocate a town post office for the second time after the location was suddenly changed.

Diss Post Office, currently found in Market Place, could be moved to a former gallery and coffee lounge at 35 Mere Street - 370 yards away.

The proposed premises, which are currently empty, would undergo a full refurbishment to incorporate the Diss Post Office and a card and stationery store if it goes ahead.

But it is the second such consultation in three months, following an initial proposal to move the office to 5 Mere Street which was put forward in November.

According to the firm, public feedback received during that consultation raised concerns about the lack of nearby parking and indoor space, prompting a search for new premises.

Locals are now being asked to comment on the new location by March 20 when submissions will be closed for consideration. 

The current branch at Market Place is under a short-term contract which is due to end soon, forcing the move into more permanent premises

The same range of Post Office services would be available at Mere Street.
