Only metres from its severely flood-damaged Lismore branch, Newcastle Permanent has opened a temporary branch to resume services to local customers.

Tuesday 13 June, 2017.

The temporary branch is open at 104 Molesworth Street in the CBD, less than 100m from the existing branch which was under almost 2m of water during the peak of the March 2017 flood. 

Lismore Branch Lending Manager, Andrew Virtue, thanked local customers for their patience and support since March. 

“I’m really grateful for the fantastic support we’ve received from our local customers who have been coming in to our Ballina branch since March, and really proud of our team’s work to look after our customers during that time. 

“We had hoped to reopen earlier, however our post-flood investigations unearthed significant building issues which will take longer than expected to fix, meaning that the only way we could resume services soon was to find an open a temporary branch,” Mr Virtue said.

“Signs point to the new location from the existing building, to help customers find their way and an ATM is available in the branch,” he said.
