Royal Mail’s Banstead delivery office is being moved to Epsom in a bid to “increase efficiency”.

The office will merge with the existing site in East Street, coming on an undetermined date in spring, will not affect deliveries, and none of the 30 jobs currently at Banstead have been lost.

People will no longer be able to pick up parcels from the Banstead office, and could either travel to Epsom instead, have parcels left with a neighbour, or arrange a redelivery day for free.

A spokeswoman for Royal Mail said: “The move is part of Royal Mail’s ongoing transformation of its business to increase the efficiency of its operation as well as providing delivery offices which are fit for purpose for our people and for our customers.

“As a commercial business, Royal Mail is responding to the huge growth in electronic communications and decline in letter volumes, while seeing a high volume of parcels and online shopping which need to be delivered to customers.

“Detailed planning is now underway to help ensure a smooth transition for our operations, our people and the service we provide to our customers.”
