Stirling MP Stephen Kerr has this week launched a banking survey, aimed at gauging perceived and real access to banking services in rural areas.
The survey focuses on questions about banking in your area, personal banking habits, and banking experiences. It follows the recent closure of bank branches in Bannockburn, Bridge of Allan and Dunblane which have further reduced the bank branch coverage across the constituency. The survey also tries to find out what services people are using and how the Post Office banking services are being used.

Stephen Kerr MP said:
“I’m encouraging everyone living in Stirling to take part in my survey, which will allow my team and I to identify the areas where banking coverage is poorest, and where the most attention is needed to improve availability. The banking world has drastically changed over the last 10 years and we must make sure the system works for everyone, and that there is access to the services needed on a day-to-day basis. “
