BBC News – Royal Mail wants to be able to leave post next door

Royal Mail wants permission for its postmen and women to be able to leave some post with a neighbour if the addressee is not at home.

It wishes to trial the idea for mail that is too large to post through a letter-box, and for some post that requires a signature.

Special delivery mail will not be included in the planned pilot scheme.

The Royal Mail also wishes to reduce the time in which consumers and firms can make a compensation claim.

Watchdog Consumer Focus said that while some consumers would welcome the idea of being able to have mail left with a neighbour, “worryingly there is no opt-out option”.

“For many people having their mail left with a neighbour they do not know, or might not trust, could open the door to problems,” said its director of post, Robert Hammond.
