Government to trial cashless kiosk in place of registry
The NSW Government has announced it will trial a cashless "digital Services NSW kiosk" in Woy Woy in coming weeks to provide community access following the 2015 closure of the Woy Woy Motor Registry.
Liberal Party candidate Ms Jilly Pilon said the NSW Government would trial the new "pop-up" kiosk in Woy Woy, to provide access to government services.
Minister for Finance, Services and Property, Mr Victor Dominello, announced that a new Service NSW Digital Store would open at Woy Woy in coming weeks.
Mr Dominello claimed that residents had been "advocating for" a digital store.
"We are living in the digital age and it is important that government policies reflect the 21st century and respond to customer demand."
Ms Pilon has said that this innovative service would be a big boost for local residents in Woy Woy and would allow customers to become confident with completing government transactions and services online.
"Transactions available at the new cashless kiosk include registration renewal, notice of disposal, NSW Seniors Card, Opal Card services, and many more," she said.
Meanwhile, NSW Leader of the Opposition, Mr Luke Foley said Labor would fight to provide the Peninsula with its own Services NSW Centre to replace the lost Motor Registry.
"Establishing a new Service NSW centre in Woy Woy aims to ensure that residents won't have to commute to Gosford or Erina every time they need to pay a bill, speak to a Government agency or make an enquiry about Government services in the area," Mr Foley said.
