Coffs Coast Advocate

Drive to waive fees

COFFS Harbour MP Andrew Fraser has called on the State Government to waive transfer fees and any other duties that may be payable on cars being purchased to replace vehicles that were damaged during the recent storm event.

“The storm that hit Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Urunga on March 31 has affected thousands of people,” Mr Fraser told the Coffs Coast Advocate.

“There were approximately 300 cars damaged by storm water that were parked in the Coffs Harbour Health Campus car park alone, and I understand approximately 1500 cars were damaged by storm water in Urunga.

“In an effort to assist victims, I am asking the State Government to waive transfer fees and other duties that may be payable, as well as assist in the re-issuing of RTA documentation that may have been destroyed, such as registration papers, driver licences, NSW Photo Cards, Mobility Parking Scheme cards and the re-issue or remake of number plates.
