A significant amount of work and public consultation has been undertaken in relation to the feasibility of establishing the Inverloch & District Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank.
A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank on 19 April 2005 in relation to the proposal to establish the Inverloch & District 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 Inverloch. A feasibility study was conducted in relation to the proposal.
The results of the feasibility study were presented to the committee at a meeting held on 29 November 2005 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of the Inverloch & District Community Bank® Branch.
The Inverloch & District Community Bank® Branch was officially opened on the 27th March 2006 and became a parent branch to our Tarwin Lower Agency on 30 March 2011.
