Dursley Town Council's Response to the Closure of Lloyds Bank

Dursley Town Council's Response to the Closure of Lloyds Bank

Dursley Town Council are extremely disappointed with the news that the Dursley branch of Lloyds Bank is to close in July 2020. This has come as a surprise as there appears to have been no consultation with local organisations, businesses and customers of the branch.

Dursley Town Council have requested that Lloyds Bank reconsider the decision following a proper consultation exercise.

In the event of the closure going ahead we have asked for further information on the proposed mobile banking facility and for the cash machine to be retained.

The matter has been raised with our local MP, Siobhan Bailley who will discuss the closure with Lloyds Bank's Head of Public Affairs later this week.

A petition against the closure has been arranged by some of the town's traders and is available to sign at many shops and businesses in the town and at the Town Council office.

The Town Council would like to thank those who attended the photo opportunity to highlight the town's protest against the closure earlier today.
