A significant amount of work and public consultation was undertaken in relation to the feasibility of establishing Warrandyte Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank.
A group of interested local residents was briefed by Bendigo Bank on 28 March 2002 in relation to the proposal to establish the Warrandyte 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 Warrandyte. 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 in August 2002 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of Warrandyte Community Bank® Branch.
The branch opened for business on 6 June 2003.
