Federal Member for Aston, Alan Tudge MP, today announced that Australia Post is prepared to establish a branded postal presence at Wellington Village.
Mr Tudge has been working with Australia Post, local traders and residents over the last two years to ensure a postal presence at Wellington Village. The nearest post office, at Stud Park, is often straining as a result of a rapid population growth in Rowville and Lysterfield.
The proposed service would be developed in conjunction with an existing tenant under an arrangement that would make it an Australian first.
The new service would mean that Rowville and Lysterfield residents will be able to access postal products and post boxes. Express Post envelopes and satchels, parcel products, envelopes and stamps will all be available as well as post boxes for regular and Express Post items.
Mr Tudge welcomed the development as a big boost for the local community.
“This has been a two year journey to convince Australia Post of our community’s needs. Our hard work and persistence looks like paying off.”
“My thanks to Australia Post who were prepared to listen to our concerns and come up with an innovative solution.”
