A proposal to move Kimbolton Post Office to a new location in the village has been scrapped.

Post Office officials launched a consultation in November last year over plans to relocate the branch from its current branch at 28 High Street, into the Old Swan pharmacy, at 29 High Street.

However, Post Office announced last Wednesday (August 2) that the proposed new operator had decided not to progress an application to operate the branch.

A spokesman for the firm said: “The current branch will continue to operate at 28 High Street for the time being. Any further proposal to relocate the branch would be subject to another six-week consultation.”

The Post Office did not confirm whether it would actively be seeking a new operator for the branch.

The proposal was part of the 
Post Office’s £1.34billion modernisation programme which began in 2012, and involved the transformation of some 6,000 branches around the UK.
