GUNNEDAH could have its government one-stop shop quicker than its expected delivery date if Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson has his way.
Mr Anderson has ramped up efforts to fast-track the delivery of a Service NSW Centre by calling on the public to participate in a survey to mount pressure on the government to deliver it by the end of the year.
“Minister (Victor Dominello) said that the NSW government would be rolling out the centres in the next 18 months, I want to gauge the community’s feeling on seeing the centre delivered sooner,” Mr Anderson told the NVI.
“I have a lot of big plans for Gunnedah and want to ensure where possible we fast track projects for our community.”
Mr Anderson is now urging the electorate to “put Gunnedah at the front of the queue” by completing a short online survey.
“We’re off to a good start so far with all respondents in favour of bringing to completion date forward, but we need as many people as possible to get behind the cause and send a strong message to the government,” Mr Anderson said.
“We’ve received responses from the villages too, which shows to importance of the project to the wider community.”
The survey will be open until July 21.
“Once the survey is completed I will be meeting with Minister Dominello to share the community’s response and if the community say they want it by the end of the year then that is exactly what I will fight for,” Mr Anderson said.
The Service NSW centre – slated for the Gunnedah RTA site – will include information and services for transport; roads and traffic; births, deaths and marriages; legal information and services; business and trades; environment, land and water; health and wellbeing; education and training; emergencies and safety; culture, sport and recreation; civic rights and responsibilities; and housing and property.
