Plans by the Post Office to shut its main York branch and transfer services inside WH Smith have raised serious concerns.
Under the proposal the Crown Post Office on Lendal would close in May. Built in 1884 by Henry Tanner it is one of the last surviving late-Victorian purpose-built post offices still in use.
Cllr Andy D’Agorne, leader of York Green party, opposed the move, saying:
- This is a further blow to the city centre economy and a worsening of facilities for local residents and businesses.
The WH Smith branch doesn’t have space to provide equivalent services as are currently offered in the Lendal Crown Post Office branch.
He is one of a number of councillors to express disquiet over the plan.
