Authority agrees Lloyds Bank partnership
Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking has signed an agreement with Rochford District Council to provide ongoing banking facilities across all of its services.
Established following a competitive tender process, the new partnership follows the end of the council's relationship with its previous banking provider. Lloyds Bank was chosen following a "robust" evaluation process.
Rochford District Council serves a population of more than 83,000 residents covering towns and villages across the Rochford district.
Gareth Denning, relationship manager at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said: "At Lloyds Bank, we recognise the importance of the public sector to the local economy.
"Our track record and expertise around the banking requirements of local authorities means that we are well placed to provide valuable funding and support for councils across the UK, including in Rochford, and we look forward to supporting the council moving forward."
