5-9 Chippenham Gardens, Kilburn Park Post Office, 4-26 Stuart Road (even numbers only)
In July 2016 planning permission was granted for the delivery of 52 new high quality homes (of which 22 are affordable and for existing South Kilburn secure tenants and 30 for private sale), and an improved and enhanced high quality public realm.
The Council is currently working through the procurement process in order to appoint a Delivery Partner for redevelopment of the site; this also includes the enhancement of the Public Realm (Adopted Highway Land) adjacent to site as part of the discharged planning condition 11.
The Council aim to have a decision made in Spring / early Summer 2019.
Following consultation with the Post Office and the current tenant, the Kilburn Park Post Office has advised the Council that it does not wish to return following redevelopment; but will instead seek to permanently relocate within the vicinity. The Council have planning approval for a fully residential scheme and will continue to keep the Post Office and the community informed of the project and programme. There are five main or sub Post Offices within a five mile radius to 5-9 Chippenham Gardens with the closest one been seven minutes’ walk from the existing site.

On Tuesday 3 April 2018, the Kilburn Park Post Office (formerly of 5-9 Chippenham Gardens) was relocated and reopened as a new branch located at 29 Malvern Road, London, NW6 5PS.
Following a period of public consultation, the Post Office Ltd have now reopened the Kilburn Park Post Office in their new main style format.
What will this mean for customers?
• A modern open plan branch in newly refurbished premises
• Longer opening hours
• The same products and services with a wider selection of on demand travel money
• Selected Post Office services will also be available at the retail counter during shop opening hours
• Improved accessibility
This change is part of a major programme of modernisation taking place across the Post Office network, the largest in the history of Post Office Ltd. The Programme is underpinned by Government investment and will see up to 8,000 branches modernised and additional investment in over 3,000 community and outreach branches.
