FOLLOWING a community meeting held to discuss the recent closure of the Lloyds Bank in Chagford, a resident has suggested registering the building as a community asset.
At a recent public meeting held in the Jubliee Hall, a number of residents expressed concerns about several closures to services in the town.
The closures included the Natwest branch, Northfield Garage and most recently the Lloyds TSB bank — which was the last existing bank in the town.
Following this news, Chagford resident Susan Harley has suggested registering the recently closed bank as a community asset — meaning that that the community have a right to bid and raise funds to purchase the building.
She said: ‘If successful the building could be an Entrepreneur and Business Hub for anyone looking to start or grow a business in Chagford.’
‘To support the application I need to know what local support this would have, so please let me know your views and ideas.’
