A significant amount of work and public consultation has been undertaken in relation to the feasibility of establishing the Pyrmont Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank.
A group of interested community members were briefed by Bendigo Bank during September 2007 in relation to the proposal to establish Pyrmont Community Bank® Branch and a committee formed to evaluate the proposal.
A preliminary public meeting was held to discuss the Community Bank® concept and the steps required to establish a Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank at Pyrmont. As a result‚ the committee engaged an independent consultant‚ AFS & Associates Pty Ltd to conduct a feasibility study in relation to the proposal.
The results of the feasibility study were presented to the committee at a meeting held during October 2008 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of the Pyrmont Community Bank® Branch.
