Councillors have held crunch talks with Clydesdale Bank bosses ahead of proposals to close branches across the North-east.
Clydesdale announced earlier this year that banks in Fraserburgh, Banff and Mintlaw would be shut, leaving customers having to travel to neighbouring towns to manage their finances.
The proposal has met with anger and a petition was started in a bid to change the minds of the bank’s bosses.
He said: “I was extremely disappointed that Clydesdale made it very clear the decision was made and closure was final with no chance of change. This will have a serious effect on Fraserburgh and Banff with many customers suffering the consequences of losing the facility.”
He said it was now important for the council to start exploring what it could do to help inconvenienced customers.
He added: “Clydesdale representatives explained the agreement and service that will be available from the Post Office which is far from perfect, but at least customers can still access their accounts.”
