The push to reinstate Cookernup’s postcode could be one step closer, with Australia Post representatives asking the community for input into the idea.

Australia Post will host three Customer Connect sessions at the Cookernup Community Hall to talk about the service in the town.

Residents have been pushing to reinstate the 6219 postcode for some time and have created a petition at the general store to gather support for the move.

Cookernup resident Jac Taylor hopes the people who sign the petition will take the time to comment directly to Australia Post staff at the consultation sessions, or through an online comment portal.

Mrs Taylor said she was grateful for move.

“We really appreciate the opportunity to talk directly to representatives,” she said.

“I hope the community takes advantage of the opportunity to have their concerns listened to by Australia Post.”

Session one will be held from 12pm-1pm on June 27, with session two held on the same day from 4pm-6pm.

A third session will be held on June 28 from 9am-10.30am.

Anyone unable to attend these sessions can have their say by going online to community.auspost.com.au/cookernup
