The community of Beaconsfield could take one more step towards the return of physical banking services with Bendigo Bank seeking to establish a branch in the city. Residents were left without physical banking services after the Bank of Heritage Isle decided to close their branches in Tasmania earlier this year. A Bendigo Bank branch would operate inside an already established store and allow people to do their banking face to face. Bendigo Bank’s regional manager in Tasmania, Martyn Neville, said the bank was evaluating possible locations for the agency. IN OTHER NEWS: He said if a suitable site is found, a minimum bank commitment of $ 5 million would be required from the community. Mr Neville said Bendigo was looking for people to transfer their banking services and not just use the agency as an ATM as that would not be viable. He said preliminary reports on the location of the agencies should be finalized by June 15. Manions Coach owner Bernard Manion is a member of a community task force to restore physical banking in Beaconsfield. He said the demographic age of the community meant it was important that there were physical services in Beaconsfield. “Beaconsfield is a senior population of people who really deserve to have a bank on site that people can go to,” Mr. Manion said. “In this region, there are people who do not leave it, they live, work and do everything in this community of Beaconsfield.
