Local MP Greg Warren has taken his fight for a Service NSW centre in Campbelltown to the floor of NSW Parliament, sometimes known as the “bear pit’’.
Mr Warren, who is also the opposition’s spokesman for Western Sydney, launched a petition late last year calling for the government to establish a Service NSW centre in Campbelltown.
Now he has submitted a notice of motion in the parliament as he ramps up his push for the centre.
Mr Warren’s notice of motion:
· Condemns the government for sneakily closing the Campbelltown RMS office in 2015
· Recognises the detrimental impact the closure of the Campbelltown office has had on residents in Campbelltown – particularly the elderly and mobility challenged
· Notes on August 13, 2014, the former finance and services minister Dominic Perrottet announced 10 new Service NSW centres would be established in NSW – including one in Campbelltown
· Condemns the former finance and services minister and the state government for breaking that promise to the people of Campbelltown
· Notes the plethora of people who have signed the petition calling for a Service NSW centre to be established in Campbelltown
· Demands the government deliver on its 2014 promise and finally establish a Service NSW centre in Campbelltown
“Thousands of people have already signed my petition calling for a Service NSW centre to be established right here in Campbelltown,” Mr Warren said.
“The sneaky and unjust closure of the Campbelltown RMS office in 2015 has caused mass frustration and inconvenience for many local residents.
“In August 2014 the then Minister for Finance and Services – now the Treasurer – Dominic Perrottet announced 10 new locations for Service NSW centres throughout the state.
“One of those locations was Campbelltown.
“It’s time the government delivered on its promise and put a Service NSW centre right here in Campbelltown.”
