Mayor fights ANZ bank closure

Mayor fights ANZ bank closure Another major bank is moving to close a suburban branch in Canterbury-Bankstown. No  

Another major bank is moving to close a suburban branch in Canterbury-Bankstown.

ANZ is scheduled to shut the doors of its Chester Hill branch for the last time on 7 May, less than nine months after the Commonwealth closed its Belmore branch.

Mayor Khal Asfour said local ANZ customers will be forced to travel to Fairfield, Auburn or Bankstown for their banking needs.

"I am especially concerned about the impact of the closure on elderly residents and people with disability," he said.

"The official Census data shows almost 20 per cent of residents who live in Chester Hill are more than 60 years old.

"I know from speaking with many elderly people in our City, they often don’t use internet banking and prefer face-to-face customer service.

"This will be a huge inconvenience to them and could be very problematic."

Mayor Asfour said he had written to ANZ Chief Executive, Shayne Elliott, requesting the bank reconsiders its decision.

"I am encouraging residents to do the same," he said.

"It’s time ANZ repaid the loyalty of its customers and workers, by genuinely listening to them.

"It needs to show it cares more about people, not profits."

Mayor Asfour said letters could be emailed to Shayne.Elliott@anz.com and ANZ could be called on 13 13 14.
