The Campaign for Community Banking Services is a co-ordinating body for organisations representing sectoral interests adversely affected by the closure of local bank branches, particularly of the last or only bank in a rural or urban community.
At the 1996/9 rate of closure, 1000 more communities will have lost all their banks within 5 years. CCBS advocates a co-operative service with all major banks contributing toward the operation of a common branch which provides access to all services.
Competition and computer systems problems would seem to make this a difficult aim to achieve. Post Office Counters may offer a viable alternative to local bank branches, particularly in partnership with local communities - subject of course to the post offices continuing to be a part of local communities.
