Kimberley Black started this petition to Auspost

Grantville residents who live within 1.2kms of the post office in Grantville are unable to have their mail delivered to their letterboxes. 

The answer is unclear as to why, because when I have discussed this with other local residents they would love to have their mail delivered to their mailbox. It appears to me that the people of Grantville have been trying to get this service for many years but unfortunately have been unsuccessful. While scratching my head and wondering why, I decided to do some research. 

According to statistics from 2016 which are well outdated, these are my findings:

Grantville has 831 residents with 520 permanent dwellings

Adams Estate has 59 residents with 37 permanent dwellings 

Pioneer Bay has 352 residents with 193 permanent dwellings

The Gurdies has 191 residents with 128 permanent dwellings 

Corinella has 690 residents with 473 permanent dwellings 

Tenby Point has 184 residents with 120 permanent dwellings 

Coronet Bay has 791 residents with 835 permanent dwellings. 

Glen Forbes has 106 residents with 55 permanent dwellings 

Bass has 359 residents with 191 permanent dwellings 

My question is why can these much smaller communities have a mail delivery service but those close to the township of Grantville cannot? 

I have sent an email to Auspost with my concerns and received a response which says -

"Hi Kimberley,

My name's Adam. Thank you for taking the time to contact us about delivery to your area. I can certainly understand your concerns.

Delivery to areas is assessed periodically dependant upon volumes (ie where hiring someone to deliver to the door is not at a loss).

Please write your request to 

Attn Manager
LEONGATHA DC
21-23 HUGHES STREET, 
LEONGATHA VIC 3953

 
 Regards,

Adam B
Australia Post"

I have also sent an email to Jordan Crugnale our local MP to see if she can assist but am still awaiting response from her. 

Please help me get the message across to Auspost that we, the people of Grantville, would really like a mail delivery service. 

Please sign this petition, share it with all of your friends and family and if you have time please use the address above and send AUSPOST a letter too as the more of us who make a noise, the more chance our community will get what we want.

Thank you �
