Santander to close 140 branches: find out if your local bank will be axed

Santander has announced plans to axe nearly a quarter of its branch network in a move that will affect thousands of customers and puts 1,270 jobs at risk.

The Spanish-owned bank says that it will close 140 branches in response to how customers are choosing to carry out their banking.

The bank says the decision is a result of more customers moving onto digital platforms.

It will keep 614 branches following the proposed changes, and customers will be able to use over 11,000 Post Office branches across the UK.

The lender has consulted unions and will seek to find alternative roles for the 1,270 employees affected. It expects to redeploy around a third.

According to the bank, the number of transactions carried out in branches has fallen by 23% over the past three years, while digital transactions have grown by 99% over the same period.

Susan Allen, head of retail and business banking, said: “The way our customers are choosing to bank with us has changed dramatically in recent years, with more and more customers using online and mobile channels.

"As a result, we have had to take some very difficult decisions over our less visited branches, and those where we have other branches in close proximity.

“We will support customers of closing branches to find alternative ways to bank with us that best suit their individual needs."

See the table below to find out if your local branch is affected, and when it's set to close. Branches are listed alphabetically by location.

Its yet another blow for the people...banks are just running them for their selves as usual...the banks encourage us to do online banking then tell us we dont need high street banks anymore....its just so annoying ..some of these branches are busy ...I am so unhappy about these closures........

Well, at least they have

Well, at least they have given me a lot of time in which to move my account. Not having a mobile phone I have either to visit a branch occasionally or wait for a letter. On balance better to move my account. Lower interest but at least I can get at the branch.

Good. The way Santander

Good. The way Santander charge people overdraft fees is a national scandal and should be investigated. They’ve made thousands out of me for a paltry £200 overdraft. Glad my local branch is closing down when I got out of them and went to another bank I couldnt bear the sight of them on the high street.

Please don't close the Banks

Please don't close the Banks in Derby

Banks are closing because

Banks are closing because they are pushing clients to bank via the internet or on their phone. It is nearly impossible to speak face to face with people these days everything is by text?

I use the Alloa branch on a regular basis and am annoyed that I now have to travel 15 miles to the nearest branch. Not ideal for senior citizens.
