APPOINTMENTS will now be required for all people wishing to drop in to Local Land Services (LLS) customer service centres throughout the state.
The measure took effect from Tuesday, March 24, and made in regards to the safety of LLS customers and employees as the top priority to taking important steps in reducing the spread of COVID-19.
"While in most instances, this means staff and customers will not have face to face contact, LLS is still here to help in these challenging times," Western LLS General Manager, Erlina Compton said.
"We've set up new systems to ensure customer enquiries are attended to by the right people in a timely manner."
Customers can keep in touch with Local Land Services in a variety of ways including by filling out an online enquiry form via the LLS website.
"In addition, we may be sending out important information via email communication, so we advise people to stay in touch by subscribing to one of our newsletters, which can be done via the LLS website," Ms Compton said.
The LLS will continue to provide essential on-ground services, such as biosecurity and emergency management, where safe and practical.
Online enquires will be responded to within two working days by return email or a phone call and online payments are still available on the LLS website.
The best way to contact LLS during this period is by sending an enquiry online via www.lls.nsw.gov.au/centraltablelands or by phoning 1300 795 299.
