The service provided onboard STAN is in addition to the processing service provided at the One Stop Shop in Rawtenstall by staff from Lancashire County Council.
Rossendale Council's Deputy Leader, Councillor Sean Serridge, said:
"This will make life a lot easier for residents throughout the borough, particularly those who find it difficult to get to Rawtenstall. STAN is a fantastic service - taking council services out into the community and making them more accessible. Hundreds of people apply for a NoW card each year and being able to process these for people onboard STAN will be a big help to them."
