post box's any regulations!


Recommended Posts

Hi,
our pride and joy that we have just bought in Brittany, has an old rusty post box in thedrive. We would prefer to replace this with something a bit better, not so much ornate, but no dents or rust. Can anyone tell me if they have to be a regulation size, height, or distance from the house, don't want the postie annoyed.

Yes, there are regulations and basically it means that the post person (very PC!) has to be able to sling the post into the box without getting out of the van from a distance of about a hundred metres . I exagerate slightly but if you buy a box locally it will be to the standard pattern and will have details with it as to the height and placing of the box. You can also buy posts to get the correct height and double entry or single entry depending on the situation. Standard boxes all have a master key so that the postie can open the box and put in anything large.
