A significant amount of work and public consultation has been undertaken in relation to the feasibility of establishing the Inglewood & Districts Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank.
A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank in March 2006 in relation to the proposal to establish Inglewood & Districts Community Bank® Branch‚ and a committee formed to evaluate the proposal. The Committee then held a meeting with other interested community members to discuss the Community Bank® concept and the steps required to establish a Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank in Inglewood.
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 in December 2006 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of the Inglewood & Districts Community Bank® Branch.
