Following much discussion and public representation, it is apparent that residents and businesses alike will have to work around the fact that Kilcoy ANZ Bank and associated banking services are no longer available in Kilcoy. I have been contacted by the landlord of the premises that was leased by ANZ Bank and I am aware of their disappointment in this matter. Alternatives are to enquire of the banking services offered by Australia Post, and rally around for the establishment of an agency or a community modelled bank branch. From further discussions it is evident businesses are already considering future processes and necessary banking changes. I believe that the most challenged by this closure is our elderly, and special attention will be required to assist this sector of future banking needs.
