Huntly residents are banding together to change the mail delivery system provided by Australia Post in a concentrated effort to rally for street-side delivery.
The upcoming Australia Post poll, scheduled to take place from August 12th through September 9th, 2023, presents an opportunity for residents to voice their preference for street-side mail delivery over the existing LPO collection.
Lisa Abbott, a Huntly Resident, has created the campaign #huntlymailpoll and is working with the community to spread the word and make some noise.
Lisa says the current system, which requires residents to collect their mail in person or pay for a post office box, fails to meet the needs of a rapidly growing community with a massive 66.78% increase in private dwellings over the past five years and over 1000
additional dwellings to be added in the coming years.
In previous polls, the ‘no’ vote for street-side delivery has won – Lisa says that is due to a multitude of reasons including if the voting slip is not returned within the poll window, they count the vote as no.
