The Post Office is proposing to move its temporary Kirkcaldy branch in the Postings to the site of the former Clydesdale Bank on the High Street.

Should the move go ahead the new branch would boast a modern open-plan design with extended opening hours.

Customers and interested parties are now invited to give their comments in a six-week public consultation.

Simon Drinkwater, regional manager, said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Kirkcaldy and we are confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”

He added: “This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office and marks a commitment to a no more branch closures programmes.”

The new Kirkcaldy Post Office would have five serving positions.

Two would be new style open-plan positions, two would be screened and the other would be an open-plan Post Office serving point at the shop’s retail counter.

The branch would open from 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Friday; 9am to 5.30pm on Saturday and from 11am to 4pm on Sunday. This would be 15 hours more than are currently offered.

During the public consultation, Post Office Ltd welcomes feedback on any issues customers would like considered before a final decision is taken on this proposal.

The consultation will close on December 2.
