Australia Post has ignored the concerns of residents desperate for mail deliveries to homes in Brookfield and Rapids Landing. Hoping for a “third time lucky,” residents keen to see homes welcome posties were urging everyone to submit their votes to the Australia Post survey which closes on May 27. The postal service has surveyed residents twice previously, failing to get the needed 50 per cent affirmative votes to start the service. But residents, including Rapids Landing man Tom Prince, said holiday homes and others occupied by short-term residents — as well as local apathy — risked not meeting the needed quota, which Mr Prince deemed unfair. But an Australia Post spokesperson declined to respond to the challenge, saying the survey system was the same used nationwide. “Where there is wide support to change delivery arrangements in a community, we will conduct a mail poll,” he said. “It’s designed to let everyone in the community have a say about the change.” The carrier aimed to be “reasonably accessible for all Australians”.
