Staff at the Yorkshire Post and the Yorkshire Evening Post are preparing to leave their iconic building just outside the centre of Leeds. After more than 40 years on Wellington Street the editorial department is moving to a new home on Whitehall Road.
The building was opened by the Prince of Wales in 1970 and used to be home to more than 1000 people. Now around 300 staff are there. They will move to No 1 Whitehall this weekend where they will be joined later by some staff from the Wakefield Express. The Wellington Street site is now for sale.
I am delighted that we have secured high profile, quality, city centre premises for our Leeds and Wakefield businesses. The move signifies a sizeable investment in our people and will provide an environment in which we can take our highly regarded media brands forward positively.
