MEDIA RELEASE - RESIDENTS ASKED TO GIVE FEEDBACK ABOUT RED STREET POSTING BOX REMOVAL AT GIRRAWEEN - WEDNESDAY, 7 SEPTEMBER 2016

Member for Greenway, Ms Michelle Rowland MP, has called on residents to provide feedback about Australia Post’s intention to remove the red street posting box at 154 Girraween Road, Girraween.

“Australia Post has recently advised me that it is making this decision on the basis that usage numbers for this box have fallen below its generally accepted levels,” Ms Rowland said.

 

“I am very interested to hear the views of our community on this issue and now is the opportunity for residents to voice or raise any concerns that they may have about Australia Post’s plans.

 

“Lack of post box accessibility is an issue for many local residents, which is why I have written to many local residents likely to be directly affected by the removal of this posting box to inform them and ask them for their views.

 

“I would be happy to put forward to Australia Post, on behalf of local residents, any concerns that may exist when I meet with Australia Post senior management in Canberra in the next few weeks”, Ms Rowland said.

 

“I would encourage any residents that may wish to raise an objection, to contact my office as soon as possible to provide further details about their concerns,” said Ms Rowland.

 

Ms Rowland can be contacted at 9671 4780 or by email at Michelle.Rowland.MP@aph.gov.au.
