Kirkheaton HD5 0DT - 188320

Closed 21 Jun 2022

Opened 24 May 2022


We are delighted to let you know that following the temporary closure of Kirkheaton Post Office we will be re-opening the branch on Tuesday 12 July 2022 at 09:00. This will be in a new location – Costcutter, 1 Moorside Road, Kirkheaton, Huddersfield, HD5 OLU.

You may be aware that, due to operational reasons, the above Post Office service at the above premises closed temporarily in January 2019.

In the interim, to serve the local community with continued access to Post Office services we set up a temporary Mobile Outreach Post Office service in July 2021. The Kirkheaton Mobile stop operates from outside the Takeaway Shop, Kirkheaton Spice, 2 Moorside Road, Kirkheaton, Huddersfield, HD5 0LX. This service will cease on Thursday 7 July 2022 at 10:15.

We have provided posters for display in the new location and the local area to let customers know the good news. 

We are keen to restore services to this community as soon as possible so we are now progressing with these plans. However, we would welcome suggestions about specific aspects of the change that might benefit customers, particularly on access into the premises and its internal layout.

Why your views matter

Whilst the decision has already been made to reopen this branch, we would still like your views on access at the new location. We welcome feedback that can help inform our plans and the questionnaire below asks for comments on the following areas:

  • Access into the new premises (Question 4)
  • Access inside the new premises (Question 5)
  • Any further feedback on our plans (Question 6)

What happens next

Thank you for your support in restoring the Post Office service in the local area.
