Department on the move
The department is being relocated to Leith Walk and Leith Street. Departmental staff from Castle Street and the Richardson Building are moving during the week beginning 12 December into their new offices at 282 Leith Walk and 262 Leith Street. Telephone numbers will remain the same. There will be some disruption to services during the relocation but we ask for your patience during this time.
