I have slammed the decision of TSB to propose closure of the Perth Road Branch of their bank at the end of March.
Since last Thursday when the letters breaking this bad news started arriving with local TSB customers, I have been contacted by many residents upset and concerned at the loss of the last Perth Road bank branch.
The TSB's Perth Road Branch is extremely well-used, always busy and has long-standing professional and friendly staff. The loss of the Perth Road TSB would be a great loss to the West End. It comes less than two years after the loss of the Royal Bank Perth Road Branch.
Last Thursday, I wrote to the local manager of TSB outlining the case for keeping this vital branch and seeking a meeting to discuss the matter further. I will do all I can to persuade TSB to reconsider and have urged all constituents who have contacted me to contact TSB also making their concerns clear.
