CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON NEW “ONE-STOP” SHOP FOR LISMORE

Construction has begun at 58 Ballina Road on the new Lismore Service NSW centre which will offer “one-stop” Government services to the local community. The service centre is due to open by early April.

Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George MP said Service NSW is a new initiative launched by the NSW Government to simplify the way NSW residents and businesses transact with the government.

“Service NSW allows customers to do more government transactions and access more services in the one location,” Mr George said.

Initially the Lismore Service NSW centre will provide transactions available at Roads and Maritime Services, the Office of State Revenue, Fair Trading, Housing NSW and Births, Deaths and Marriages. More transactions and services will be added in the future.

“This is an exciting new service for the people of Lismore. I’m confident that our community will benefit from the expanded services and expanded hours Service NSW will offer,” Mr George said.

“Service NSW will offer the Lismore community services including driver licences, contractor licences, applications for birth certificates, Seniors Cards, Housing NSW payments and more from the one location.”

Mr George said that Service NSW will allow customers more choice in how they do business with the government.

“The Lismore service centre will be open from 7am-7pm Monday to Friday and 9am-3pm on Saturday. This is backed up by a 24 hour, seven day a week phone service - 13 77 88 - and website, www.service.nsw.gov.au,” he said.

“These service options will allow customers to choose when, how and where they do their government transactions.”

Lismore Service NSW centre manager Mandy Poles added that the centre location had been carefully chosen to offer convenience.

“The centre is in a convenient, central location with parking and accessibility options. I know that many people from our community will benefit from the centralised services we offer.”
