Battle Town Council are supporting the campaign to return a 24/7 ATM to Battle High Street.

At a Council meeting this week Cllr Kathryn Field confirmed discussions had been undertaken with the Conservation Officers and others in relation to alterations at the old NatWest building. Cllr Gyngell, Chairman of Planning & Transport Committee has been invited to meet with Planning Officers at Bexhill Town Hall to discuss this further 

In today's Bexhill and Battle Observer there is a report on the work undertaken by local activist Paul Redstone and Battle MP Huw Merriman who had introduced a private members' bill in parliament in regard to retention of ATMs in towns the size of Battle. This had cross party support but did not have time to get passed. However, in response to the interest shown by the government in the initiative, the banks and others have been taking action.

LINK, the network provider and industry body responsible for the Link network, has also take an active role.  CEO, John Howells, met Huw Merriman in Parliament and is now seeking to support the provision of cash machines in towns such as Battle.
