Lloyds Bank To Quit Burgess Hill In February 2024
24th September 2023 |
Another blow for residents and the town centre with the news that Lloyds Bank will be closing their branch on Church Road and quitting Burgess Hill in February 2024.
Lloyds' departure from Burgess Hill will be the sixth by a financial institution in recent years and follows Natwest, TSB, Barclays, HSBC and Yorkshire Building Society out of the town.
Only Santander, Nationwide and The Halifax
The forthcoming closure of Lloyds is part of 35 branch closures for the Lloyds Banking Group across the UK which includes 15 branchs of The Halifax leaving some high streets across the country.
In some cases it has taken years for new businesses to move into the premises vacated by banks in Burgess Hill.
Natwest left the town in 2018 and only in the summer ofthis year did the building get taken on by a private dentist.
One building which didn't take 5 years to occupy was the former home of Barclays Bank which got snapped up pretty quickly by Hunters Estate Agents.
HSBC has been closed since September 2022, as of yet there is no
sign of anyone moving in or the landlord doing any work to make the building more lettable.
TSB on Church Walk closed in April 2020. Permission was granted to split the unit up but no work has taken place to reconfigure the unit. There is work going on above however, with the conversion of the offices on the first floor and two additional floors of apartments currently being constructed.
