A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank on 2 July 1999 in relation to the proposal to establish Toodyay & Districts Community Bank® Branch and a committee was formed to evaluate the proposal.
A preliminary meeting was held to discuss the Community Bank® concept and the steps required to establish a Community Bank® branch at Toodyay & Districts. As a result‚ the committee engaged an independent consultant 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 October 1999 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of Toodyay & Districts Community Bank® Branch.
