“We are holding all the mail at the G1-5 delivery office. As long as residents bring ID which has their address on it, their mail can be collected.
We would be happy to set up a central point to deliver mail to as we have done in other occasions like this. for example in Kilmarnock when there was flooding and we delivered all mail to a community centre.
I suspect it would be up to the council to do this as well as helping residents get ID if they haven’t got their ID. This could be a letter from the council which says the person lives at xxx address.
Ill also look into a free redirection for residents which I have done before in cases of extreme flooding etc. this can be to a friends/family address or a new address if they are rehoused but it would be helpful if you can let me know about how many people it affects.
Very sad about the art school.
