Residents in a set of planned flats in Boston town centre would not have far to go for a stamp – they would be living at the back of the post office.
Post Office Ltd, wich runs the Wide Bargate facility, has applied to Boston Borough Council to create 10 one and two-bedroom flats on the first and second-floor of the building.
As part of the application, they have also asked for permission to change the old delivery office at the rear into a cafe and drinking establishment.
The area which the company wants to change has not been in use since 2000.
The post office currently operating at the front of the building will not be affected by the application.
No parking spaces have been planned for the site, which the applicant said was because it is within the town centre, but a number of cycle stores would be built in near to the bin store at the back.
Post Office Ltd registered the plans with the council just before Christmas. It has yet to be determined.
