ABSTRACT
This paper addresses social and economic issues relating to closures of bank branches in rural communities. It examines research on the issues at government and academic levels and then applies the results to rural communities, where local people have identified their own needs and set about instigating change. Of note is the local management of change when communities recognized what was occurring in their towns threatened the long‐term viability of their local economy and thus their community's survival. Community development theory is then used to examine the processes these communities went through to achieve their notable outcomes.
