Banking Hub coming to Moor Market

February 2024

Ashfield District Council’s Moor Market in Kirkby is set to be home to a new banking hub. Last year, Kirkby in Ashfield was chosen as a location for one of 68 new banking hubs across the UK, owned by Cash Access UK.

The banking hubs are shared spaces on the high street that allow customers of multiple banks to deposit and withdraw money, get face-to-face help, and carry out regular banking transactions. They also have a private room available for one-to-one discussions.

Ashfield District Council have been working with Cash Access UK to find a suitable location, and now the planning application for the hub in Kirkby has been submitted to the Council. The new banking hub will allow more residents and business access to their money, without having to travel out of Kirkby.

Cllr Jason Zadrozny, Leader of Ashfield District Council, said: “We are delighted that the planning application for the banking hub at Kirkby has now been submitted. We know that so many residents have struggled with the lack of face-to-face banking in Kirkby since the banks closed, and the banking hub will make a huge difference to people’s lives.

“It’s not just residents who will benefit from this hub, our small businesses will also be able to utilise it. This is an exciting step towards the hub opening in Kirkby.”
