CHESHIRE County Council is inviting Royal Mail and Post Office executives to a meeting to discuss ways of improving services throughout the county.
It follows a council meeting on Thursday in which a motion put forward by council deputy leader David Rowlands received all-party backing.
The issue will now be raised before all Cheshire's MPs.
Council leader Paul Findlow told the meeting that he had also asked chief executive Jeremy Taylor to arrange talks to take place between the county council and Royal Mail and Post Office executives.
Cllr Nora Dolphin, who seconded the motion, said she realised that postal services were more costly abroad but asked: 'Why are we paying for a first class stamp for a third class service?'
Nantwich's county councillor Arthur Moran believed that Royal Mail and the Post Office had made what he referred to as 'bad decisions' regarding the scrapping of mail trains, although two he believed were now being specially resurrected to deal with Christmas post.
He also referred to the closure of post offices, pointing out that in the past two weeks he had been informed of three closures in Crewe, one in Nantwich and one near Sandbach.
He said: 'The reason given for closure is that they have been hit by a decline in the number of customers and that is because pensioners have been told that they now cannot collect their pension at the post office and it must be paid into their bank.
'Royal Mail and the Post Office have been cutting services and cutting costs resulting in a deterioration of the whole service.'
After the meeting Cllr Rowlands said: 'I am extremely pleased that my motion received all-party support.
'Something must be changed and I hope that our talks with officials and with Cheshire MPs may result in an upgrade in some way to the service we used to receive which we have come to rely upon.'
