Member for Narungga Fraser Ellis MP advises the Narungga Electorate Office is to move from its existing location of 51 Robert Street Maitland to 37 Graves Street Kadina and be operational at its new base in January 2021.
“When I was first elected in 2018, I inherited the Maitland office of my predecessor Steven Griffiths and have been there since. With the lease on this building ending in January 2021, the decision was made to move the electorate office to Kadina, the region’s commercial centre which houses numerous government agencies”, Mr Ellis said.
“In my view the move to the electorate’s highest populated Copper Coast region will improve accessibility for a majority of constituents, particularly in light of the electorate boundary changes to come into effect from March 2022 when the Adelaide Plains communities are to be removed from the State seat of Narungga.
“Localities including Mallala, Dublin, Lower Light and Long Plains and the beach communities of Port Parham, Thompson Beach and Webb Beach are to move out of the Narungga electorate in 2022 to be replaced with communities further north of the existing electorate boundary such as Blyth, Brinkworth and Redhill. Thus, in my view, the new Kadina office is considered a good central location for the new electorate office.”
The Kadina office will be located in the town’s main retail precinct, at 37 Graves Street, and will be open in January (exact date to be confirmed).
The move from Robert Street office in Maitland commences from 22 December.
Constituents are advised that the existing phone number of 88322455 will remain active throughout the transition period, and that enquiries will also continue to be received via the office email address of [email protected] which will be monitored without interruption.
