Nationwide had been considering moving from their current premises further down the high street, to an expanded branch in the Clarks shop, located prominently at the entrance to County Square shopping centre.

Planning permission was granted by Ashford Borough Council in September 2013, but the firm has confirmed they are no longer planning to move.

It is not known when the current Clarks lease expires.
