I have now created a new topic "Current Mail Centres", which I will keep updated with the MC's in operation.
Will update it with these updates.

Anyone know if Tescos still have that big place at Nursling, if they don't have it anymore is it empty or has another company taken it over?


In response to a query a couple of years ago, we were assured by the MC manager at Southampton that the lease on the building doesn't expire until 2040-something (I think it was 2047). If true, imminent renewal is hardly an issue.

Not sure about Nursling - often suggested as a potential site for a new mailcentre. A move will probably happen sometime - the office here in SO is simply not big enough to cope with the mail currently coming in. This has become even more the case since our local cabal of witless WCM zombies took it upon themselves to construct a "training centre" just inside the entrance to the work floor, which has wiped out rather a lot of vital floorspace; for, IMNSFHO, no good or necessary reason. Where once were two full packet bullrings is now a dinky little classroom with a table and some chairs, a few empty sorting frames and soon, we're promised, a thrilling IQ test involving lego. Anybody know the Japanese for "fuckwits"?

The room, BTW, is referred to by staff here as the ColleagueShare room. Geddit??!?

I work in a MC along the south coast and also hear Baa want royal mail out.
I also heard royal mail have got land just off the M27 at Whiteley, between southampton and portsmouth.

Re: Mail Centre rationalisation programme

06 Feb 2012, 09:38

RM has had the option on land there for some years, and given that neither SO or PO MCs are fit for purpose (SO have just about the worst performing IMPs in the country and PO have old MTTs etc) you can bet there's going to be a flat-packed multi-iLSM MC there in less than five years.

Just had letter today 6th Feb., from local union rep. at Shrewsbury mail centre that the National Processing Group are meeting today 6th Feb. about future of Shrewsbury Mail centre,not much notice there then.
Outgoing MCM has informed union that he had seen final mail centre estate which will consist of 33 mail centres by 2015.He had also seen plans for Shrewsbury MC which had a people issue marked against it as the risk.

Re: Mail Centre rationalisation programme

06 Feb 2012, 23:10

33 seems about right but 2015 was the original plan and last year's Report and Accounts said the plan had been extended until 2016-17. Chester seems likely to take SY, TF into Wolves? But what about LD?

Until we got lumbered with redirects from the "new" stalag 13 KMC because of a proposed visit from Moya....they seemed to have forgot that the staff had all gone to Medway. Still its a bit of final work for us casuals before we are left to turn out the lights!

If you read the prospectus, there's some interesting stuff on Ops. There are over 400 pages, no I have not read it all! Target MCs is 37 which means no more closures after Ipswich & Portsmouth. Has this info been released anywhere else?

Re: Mail Centre rationalisation programme

29 Sep 2013, 21:12

They listed three closures for 2015/16 but didn't specify which offices. Ipswich and Portsmouth are known about but who is the third office?

Re: Mail Centre rationalisation programme

14 Jul 2015, 16:30

Any update?

Re: Mail Centre rationalisation programme

11 Nov 2015, 15:41

Ipswich downgraded to IVO status due to size of area basically inward work. Portsmouth basically closing in 2016 still nothing on a 3rd MC but Gatwick and Croydon merging on the cards due to Gatwick airport 2nd runway. Also Greenford MC on the proposed HS2 routing So another reshuffle on the cards 2020. Also whats the future with PRDC long term especially with the new interchange for Cross Rail being built at Oak Common a lot of Railway Depots ie Heathrow Express and others may have to move up to Willesden Junction right near PRDC. I have heard that RM are looking another site near Abbots Langley or Radlett

It has been announced Ipswich closing down next year and inward work moved to Chelmsford

Rumour that the plans to install a parcel sorting machine into Leeds has been scrapped.

Wonder if this means that they finally agree that the building is not fit for purpose or more likely that the also rumoured Yorkshire super centre is on the horizon..

So Leeds, Sheffield, Doncaster and Hull all under one roof? Interesting, I wonder where that would be built.
