Labor will move Liquor and Gaming NSW to Wollongong. Liquor and Gaming NSW is the public sector agency responsible for the regulation of liquor, gaming & wagering, casinos and clubs.
This will involve the relocation of more than 200 jobs from the Sydney CBD to Wollongong. While the public sector will not create all the jobs Wollongong needs, the relocation of public sector jobs can be an important catalyst for private sector investment.
Diversifying the economic base of Wollongong will also strengthen the city’s commercial core and support the ongoing transformation and upgrade of the city centre.
The relocation of Liquor and Gaming NSW will be undertaken during the first term of a Labor Government.
