The brand new Service NSW centre in Moree is edging closer to completion, with Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall visiting the construction site on Friday to see the progress.

The centre is a one-stop shop that provides easy access to hundreds of state government services in the one location.

The new centre will have a central location at 80 Balo Street and will employ five new staff.

"The new centre will make it easier for Moree residents to interact with agencies including Roads and Maritime Services, Fair Trading and Births, Deaths and Marriages," Mr Marshall said.

"Just because you live in a country area doesn't mean you should have any less access to essential government services.

"This centre will provide face to face services and allow people to get a birth certificate, vehicle registration, a driver licence and also Seniors Card.

"It gives residents and businesses access to the same range of transactions available at centres like Armidale."

Mr Marshall said it would be particularly beneficial for older people to come into the centre and have staff help you access these services rather than trying to do it online.

There are currently more than 100 Service NSW centres open around the state, with the Moree centre due to open by September and will operate between 9am and 4pm on weekdays.

"Households across the electorate are accessing considerable savings when they book in a one hour appointments with a Service NSW Cost of Living Specialist," Mr Marshall said.

"At Armidale figures show there have been close to 550 Cost of Living appointments made with an average saving of $972, an opportunity I want Moree residents to have access to.

"I want to make sure people can access more than 70 government rebates and savings available through Service NSW including CTP refunds, Active Kids, Creative Kids and Energy Switch."

In the meantime, the Mobile Service Centre will be visiting the region again this week, stopping in Yetman, Ashford, Boggabilla and Mungindi.
