SERVICE NSW IS COMING TO MURWILLUMBAH

Murwillumbah has been announced as the second motor registry to be converted to a new Service NSW Centre as part of the State Government’s $20 million rollout of 24 new one-stop shops into rural and regional NSW.

Minister for Finance, Services and Property, Victor Dominello, along with Member for Lismore, Thomas George, announced today that the old motor registry would be refurbished to accommodate the new Service NSW one stop shop model.

Mr Dominello said the Service NSW centre will be a welcome addition to the Tweed Shire, joining existing Centres at Tweed Heads and Lismore.

“Service NSW continues to be a game-changer in how customers interact and transact with government, and we are pleased to be bringing this successful one-stop shop model to Murwillumbah,” Mr Dominello said.

“The new service centre means residents and local businesses will be able to access more than a thousand government services and transactions all in one location.”

Mr George said the expansion of the Service NSW one-stop shop network was a win for regional NSW.

“Through the rollout of Service NSW the NSW Government is bringing more frontline services and transactions to more parts of the State,” he said.

“It doesn’t matter whether you live in Marrickville or Murwillumbah, you can access the same services from a friendly, expert and professional team.

“Once open, the Murwillumbah Service Centre will make transacting with government more convenient, offering everything from driver licences, vehicle registrations, Seniors Card applications, owner builder permits and housing payments under the one roof.”

Refurbishment of the existing motor registry office at Shop 3, 289-291 Tweed Valley Way is underway, with the new Service NSW Centre set to open Friday 20 October.

During the refurbishment, Mr Dominello said hundreds of services, including vehicle registration and licence renewal, could be done online 24/7.

“While there will always be a need for bricks and mortar Service Centres, online services offer customers the convenience of being able to transact anywhere at any time,” he said.
