GLEN INNES and district residents won’t have long to wait before a new Service NSW Centre will be rolled out in town, with Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall today announcing that construction will begin on the new centre over the next couple of months.
“Final planning is now underway and I have been informed that current projections have construction starting in February 2018, with a grand opening to the public by mid-next year,” Mr Marshall said.
“I will push Minister Victor Dominello to speed up that process by any means available as I’d like Glen Innes locals to benefit from everything Service NSW has to offer as soon as possible.”
The new Centre will be established in Grey Street, at the site of the former ANZ Bank branch. Mr Marshall said the prime storefront was chosen after a thorough assessment of a number of locations due to the available space and ease of access for locals.
“When construction finishes early next year, residents will find it easier than ever to complete more than 800 different government transactions face-to-face,” he said.
“No longer will you need to spend ages poring over government websites or on hold to a call centre, just to update your details or pay a bill.”
This state-wide re-engineering of NSW Government services has already been rolled out in Armidale and Inverell. Feedback has demonstrated that customers have seen tremendous benefits to convenience and customer service.
“Service NSW Centres are open for longer than the current RMS registry, employ more local people and offer a far greater variety of services, via a convenient ticketed system,” Mr Marshall said.
“Whether you need to renew a drivers’ licence, register a vehicle, apply for a Seniors Card or a boat licence or pay for social housing, Service NSW is by far the easiest way and friendliest way to get it done.
“I’ll be working to ensure this hugely beneficial service is completed without delay and that Moree’s new Service NSW Centre follows shortly after.”
Since its launch in 2013, Service NSW has revolutionised customer service delivery with a new way of delivering services online through www.service.nsw.gov.au and the new mobile app, through the 24/7 phone service on 13 77 88 and new one-stop shops with expanded trading hours.
