Ballan is situated in the west of Victoria between Melbourne and Ballarat. It is an easy 50 minute drive to Melbourne via the Western Freeway.
The Ballan & District Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank started with the Steering committee who endeavoured to raise funds for the project they believed would deliver significant social and economic benefits to Ballan and its surrounding districts.
After community feedback and an independent formal feasibility study in which local people and businesses indicated their support of a local branch, shares were offered and taken up.
All of the work done by the steering committee was well worth it as on November 4th, 2011, the Ballan & District Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank opened its doors for business.
When you choose to be a Ballan & District Community Bank® Branch customer, you not only make a decision that benefits you, you also make one that benefits your community. That's because with every savings or investment account, every home or personal loan, and every product or service we offer, part of our profits go back into our communities to support local projects, groups and organisations.In the time since opening, the business has continued to grow with over $25,000 being put back in to the local community.
