NALC pushes postal access in rural areas
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) has pushed for more robust rural access to all postal services.
In its response to the Office of Communications (OFCOM) review of postal regulation (2022-27), NALC argued that postal collections from and deliveries to remote rural (parished) areas should continue to be reliable, timely and high quality over the next five years.
NALC strongly argued for OFCOM to build carbon reduction into its proposals, stating that competition was needed in a harsh financial environment. There needs to be a more sustainable programme of practical revenue support for the Sub Post Office Network, including PO Local and Outreach.
