A significant amount of work and public consultation has been undertaken in relation to the feasibility of establishing the Barwon Heads Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank.
In relation to the proposal to establish Barwon Heads Community Bank® Branch‚ a committee was formed to evaluate the proposal. This group of interested community members were briefed by Bendigo Bank on 25 March 2009.
An active awareness campaign was held in and around Barwon Heads. As a result‚ the committee engaged an independent consultant‚ AFS & Associates 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 on 4 November 2010 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of the Barwon Heads Community Bank® Branch.
