Planning permission granted for Calthorpe House
23 July 2012
BPMA is delighted to announce that the planning application for its new home at Calthorpe House, near Mount Pleasant sorting office in London, has been approved by the London Borough of Camden.
The grant of planning permission means that the BPMA is now another step further in realising the move of its unique collections to a new and accessible home.
The new Postal Museum will provide access to the BPMA's amazing collections of 400 years of postal, social and design history, including photographs, posters, vehicles, pillar boxes, employment records of millions of people and a world-class stamp collection.
The new centre will allow the BPMA to exhibit objects from its fascinating museum collection, which is currently held in storage. The new state-of-the-art premises will also include educational facilities for visiting schools, digitisation facilities and a purpose built Archive repository, built to modern environmental and security standards.
