Geraldton MLA Ian Blayney has written to Transport Minister Hon Dean Nalder regarding the issue of localised car number plates.
“I’ve been approached by a number of constituents who have concerns about their ability to access local plates for their cars in future.
“The issues are to do with number plates issued by the Shire of Greenough since its amalgamation with the City of Greater Geraldton.
“I’ve asked the Minister to advise whether a person with an existing G plate can obtain new ones?
“Also, whether it’s possible to buy a set of G plates from someone who already has a set and wishes to sell them?
“Another issue raised with me is – if a plate has been handed back and is no longer used, is it possible to gain a list of those plates and get them reissued?
“And lastly, like all Shires in the region, Greenough issued a series of special plates in reverse order. Is it still possible to obtain these plates?
“While the Shire no longer exists and the new local authority no longer carries the name Greenough, locals have a strong attachment to their area and genuinely would like to keep, or obtain their number plates,” said Mr Blayney.
