Woy Woy and Peninsula residents will soon have easier access to more NSW Government services with a new Digital Hub to be established in Woy Woy with support from the NSW Liberal National Government as part of the 2018 State budget.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald MLC, Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch MP and The Hon Taylor Martin MLC were onsite today at the existing Service NSW kiosk in Deepwater Plaza in Woy Woy to announce that Service NSW is developing an enhanced service to replace the existing kiosk.

The Woy Woy Digital Hub will be cashless and deliver the full range of transactions that are offered through a NSW Service Centre with the exception of driver testing and knowledge services.

“When the hub opens early next year, customers will be able to access more services than at the existing kiosk. The number of services will climb from 280 to around 1000,” Mr MacDonald said.

“The Woy Woy community liked having the kiosk but common feedback was that the kiosk did not offer EFTPOS payment and the full suite of transactions available at Service NSW.”

“The Digital Hub will cater to locals’ needs now and into the future, with the Hub also operating in a new shopfront location with more staff available to assist customers, rather than as a kiosk,” Mr Crouch said.

“Service NSW provides easy access to the services that matter to people’s lives, whether that’s lodging a medical change of conditions for a driver licence, applying for a birth, death or marriage certificate, or renewing your boat licence. All with a 98% customer satisfaction rating.”

“Service NSW is also delivering on the NSW Government’s plan to reduce the cost of living for families and pensioners across NSW. This new service offering will allow people to claim their Active Kids Voucher, get their CTP Refund or access energy rebates,” Mr Martin said.

“Residents in Gosford have already taken advantage of these great initiatives, with 7055 Active Kids Vouchers claimed and 35,813 drivers claiming almost $1.8 million in CTP Refunds.
