Plans to convert a Burntwood post office into a dental surgery are due to be discussed at a meeting in the town.
Proposals have been drawn up for a change of use to the Cannock Road site.
The move has become controversial following the latest bank closure at Sankey’s Corner.
As part of the move to shut the Barclays branch later this year, Michael Fabricant MP had reassured residents that they would still be able to access their money using the post office facilities.
The site has been up for sale since September and Saleem Mulla, from Inspire Dental Centre who hope to change the use of the building, said the post office would be likely to shut even if the go-ahead wasn’t given for the dental surgery.
“The owner is even contemplating taking the shop off the market and leaving it as empty premises,” Saleem said. “Although unfortunate, I think the loss of this particular post office is inevitable.
“It would be a shame if a high street shop were to be vacant and lie empty. This area is prone to vandalism and antisocial behaviour and an empty property will only make it more appealing to such elements.”
The proposals will be discussed at a meeting of Burntwood Town COuncil’s planning committee on Thursday (March 29).
