Tesch welcomes Service NSW shopfront announcement
Member for Gosford, Ms Liesl Tesch, has welcomed the announcement that Service NSW will open a Digital Hub shopfront in Woy Woy.
She said that, while not a full Service NSW office with driver testing and knowledge services the Hub will be a step up for locals looking to complete vital State Government transactions. "Three years after the Liberal Government closed the Woy Woy RMS office, the government has caved to community pressure and will reopen a more substantial offering on the Peninsula than the existing limited service kiosk," Ms Tesch said.
"More than 15,000 locals signed a petition, debates and motions in the Parliament, and constant pressure for three years made this happen," Ms Tesch said.
"Never say that community voice doesn't make a difference in government decision making."
Ms Tesch said it was vital to keep a human face for the community when dealing with government services.
"We've got an older population here on the Peninsula, and making them rely on a fully digital service is just not fair, especially if things go wrong," Ms Tesch said.
"The Service NSW Digital Hub will mean a new dedicated storefront, and staff available to assist locals with 1000 NSW Government services," she said.
