Bathurst one stop shop to open
Minister for Finance, Services and Property, Dominic Perrottet today said the Bathurst community would benefit greatly from the opening of the new Service NSW one stop shop due to open to the public this Friday.
“Being able to carry out multiple transactions in one place saves everyone time and money,” Mr Perrottet said.
“The new service centre, located at the site of the old motor registry on the corner of Bradwardine Rd and the Mitchell Highway, is due to open its doors to the public this Friday after a brief refurbishment.
“The Service NSW Bathurst centre will be the 31st service centre launched in NSW since Service NSW commenced in 2013 – and I’m confident it will be a success here just as it has in neighboring towns including Dubbo and Orange.”
Service NSW offers customers access to more than 800 NSW government transactions including driver licences, vehicle registrations, Seniors Card applications, birth certificate applications, owner builder permits, housing payments and more.
“Customers will also benefit from the extended trading hours here at Bathurst (8.30am-5.30pm weekdays and 8.30am-12pm Saturdays), digital self-serve capability and the ability to make appointments to make their visit to Service NSW even more convenient,” Mr Perrottet said.
Member for Bathurst, Paul Toole MP today toured the centre meeting with Service NSW manager Karen Tierney and her team as they prepared to open the doors to the new centre on Friday morning.
“This is a very exciting development for the residents and businesses of Bathurst,” Mr Toole said. “I’ve had the pleasure of hearing firsthand the feedback from customers who have experienced Service NSW in the central west and it’s overwhelmingly positive.”
“I’m confident Karen and her team will provide equally excellent services at the Bathurst Service Centre. Plans are also underway to convert the Lithgow motor registry into a new one stop shop due to open to the public later this year.”
Since its launch in July 2013, Service NSW has served more than 13 million customers through its digital service at www.service.nsw.gov.au, 24/7 phone service on 13 77 88 and a network of one stop shops across the State.
