Campaign to save Lupus Street Post Office moves up a gear


Labour’s campaign to save Lupus Street Post Office from closure has moved up a gear with the tabling of a motion for the next meeting of Westminster City Council on Wednesday 10th July;

The motion, to be moved by Councillor Nilavra Mukerji and seconded by Councillor David Boothroyd, says;

“This Council agrees that the closure of the Lupus Street Post Office would be damaging for the Pimlico community, particularly local residents who would be faced with a 20 minute walk to the nearest post office, and local businesses who would be faced with a loss of trade. The Council therefore calls on the Post Office to listen to the community and to withdraw all proposals to close Lupus Street post office.”

Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg, Leader of the Labour Group, said;

“This is a vital issue for the whole community and we are hoping for a cross-party agreement so that the motion is passed unanimously by the full Council. This will send a very strong message to the Post Office bosses that closure of Lupus Street would be the wrong decision and will be fiercely resisted.”
