Our Branch

A significant amount of work and public consultation has been undertaken in relation to the feasibility of establishing the Murrumbeena Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank.

A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank in October 2002 in relation to the proposal to establish Murrumbeena 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 at Murrumbeena.

As a result the committee engaged an independent consultant‚ MGI Meyrick Webster 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 2002 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of the Murrumbeena Community Bank® Branch.
