Stevenson to Meet with Clydesdale Bank on Closures

Commenting on the announcement by the Clydesdale Bank that it is to close 40 branches nationwide, including those in Buckie, Banff and Fraserburgh, Banffshire & Buchan Coast SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson said:

“I will be meeting with Clydesdale Bank senior management along with my MP colleagues to discuss their planned closures.

“Clearly, the way people do their banking is changing, with more and more of it done online and by phone, reducing the amount of footfall in branches.

“However, there is still a significant need for businesses, organisations and individuals to be able to deposit their shop takings, collect change, bank cheques, and also to be able to speak to staff face-to-face.

“If the Clydesdale Bank is effectively giving up on certain larger communities, then I would encourage those communities to support those banks which still have a presence in Buckie, Banff and Fraserburgh to help secure their future.”
