Call to suspend delivery service

HOME DELIVERY: Residents could end up with communal mail box areas. if plans to scrap home deliveries goes ahead.

ACTING Mayor of Orihuela, Antonio Zapata, has signed a letter to Correos calling for the suspension of the removal of the home post delivery service in Orihuela Costa.

The service is due to be removed from September 1 in the areas of La Regia, Campoamor, Cabo Roig, La Zenia and La Zenia II, but following uproar from residents and political groups, Zapata has called for a halt on the move whilst appeals are made and the issue is legally resolved.

The decision to stop home deliveries and replace them instead with mailboxes and a collection service, was adopted on the grounds that there is a population density of less than 25 inhabitants per hectare, as the whole area is divided into smaller urbanisations.

However, the Government team have filed an administrative appeal on the grounds that Orihuela Costa as a whole is an established urban area with a much higher population.

      What is new? We have lived in Orihuela Costa for eleven years and still do not get mail delivered to our house. When we asked why, we were told that there was insufficient staff to perform this task. Rubbish. At that time it was a ploy by the PP party to prevent us voting unless voting papers were deliverd directly to our home address rather than to the private mail box we had been ‘ forced’ to use. We have paid over 1200 euros to receive our mail in a country that purports not to be ‘ third world.’
