The Boort Business & Tourism Council, along with the Boort community, are extremely concerned by the recent announcement of the proposed closure and downgrade of services by the Commonwealth Bank Boort branch.

The closure will have a significant impact on local businesses and members of our community.  

By forcing our local residents and business people out of town to complete their basic banking needs, it would also, undoubtedly, encourage out of town shopping.  This will have a massive effect on the patronage in our local businesses, an issue which this committee has been successfully striving to improve over the past few years.

Access to banking is a vital service which must remain in Boort to ensure our viability in the future.  Our town boasts a strong community, well established and successful local agricultural businesses, more than 50 small businesses servicing our community, large companies investing in our area and a brand new school with more than 200 students.  Not only will our residents, tourists and businesses have no access to the local branch, but our students will also lose access to the school banking program.

We understand the current trend towards electronic banking, but there is ALWAYS going to be the need for face-to-face banking in our community.  The CBA should remember that they are in a service industry and the customer should be treated as a priority.

Please don't close our local CBA Boort branch........
