Despite being told a move for the post box from near the bus stop in Lomond Cres to Bellvista Market Place was not going to happen, that move did happen today. The post box is now in Rawson Street near the Bellvista Market Place entry driveway.
It had to be positioned in the new spot to enable Postal services easy access to collect mail for delivery. Though the new position isn’t in the safest place, it is believed that was the best spot available.
Whilst the Lomond Cres post box was being removed a resident parked in the bus area to post a letter. Just as they were out of the car a School Bus was blocked from parking and dropping off children. The worker doing the job believed the Lomond Cres positioning of the post box was dangerous because of the proximity to a bus stop area.
Concerns over moving the post box can be made online HERE or by phoning 13 POST (13 7678).
For the vast majority of residents, the repositioning of the mail box will be welcomed.
