Cumberland's cash machine plan in Brampton
Last updated at 14:27, Friday, 03 January 2014
After more than three decades in Brampton the Cumberland Building Society wants to add something new to its branch – a cash machine.
The Cumberland has submitted a planning application to install one at its building on Front Street, which opened in 1981.
This was sent to Carlisle City Council and is currently out for consultation.
The news comes after HSBC announced it would shut its branch in the town on February 14.
Philip Ward, the building society’s marketing manager, told The Cumberland News this was a big commitment to Brampton.
He said: “It is something that we have looked at for a little while, given HSBC’s impending closure and that current accounts are a key part of our business. We are committed to our branch in Brampton.”
If the application is successful, the cash machine will go in the branch’s doorway.
Mr Ward would not reveal how much it would cost to install the machine.
