Banking hub location plan

Posted onPosted on 7th Mar

Moor Market, Kirkby, is set to be home to a new banking hub.

Last year the town, which no longer has a major bank branch, was chosen as a location for one of 68 new Cash Access UK. hubs across the UK.

Banking hubs are shared spaces on the high street that allow customers of multiple banks to deposit and withdraw money, get face-to-face help, and carry out regular banking transactions. They also have a private room available for one-to-one discussions.

Ashfield District Council has been working with Cash Access UK to find a suitable location, and now a planning application has been submitted.

Coun Jason Zadrozny, leader of the council, said: “We know that so many residents have struggled with the lack of face-to-face banking in Kirkby since the banks closed, and the banking hub will make a huge difference to people’s lives.

“It’s not just residents who will benefit from this hub, our small businesses will also be able to utilise it. This is an exciting step towards the hub opening in Kirkby.”
