RBS local branch closure

Press Release, 21st May, 2015

RBS local branch closure

Commenting on the decision by the Royal Bank of Scotland to close its Greenock West Blackhall Street branch on September 9th 2015 local MSP Duncan McNeil said:

“It’s disappointing to find that this decision appears to have been taken without any engagement or consultation with the local community.”

“I’m also worried about the potential job loses that will come with this decision as well as the negative impact it will have on the town centre.”

“This is the third RBS closure in roughly three years within Inverclyde and you can see how local people might reach the conclusion that the bank is slowly but surely withdrawing from the high street.”
