The proposed transfer of Kirkheaton Post Office from St Mary’s Lane to Town Road scheduled for Thursday 17th January will now NOT TAKE PLACE! The agreement between the PO and the owners of the newsagents on Town Road has fallen through. The PO at its present site will still close down on Wednesday leaving Kirkheaton without a PO for the near future while the debacle is sorted out.

This is the second time that a proposed move has fallen through – in 2013 there were plans to move the PO  to Select and Save on Bankfield Lane but this was aborted at the consultation stage.
