We recently completed the distribution the Autumn 2017 Parliamentary Report for John Mason MSP, the Member of the Scottish Parliament for Glasgow Shettleston Constituency.
The report was distributed throughout his constituency area and was, therefore, a boundary distribution since it had to be distributed within the boundary of his constituency area. This area included parts of Glasgow City Centre, Shettleston, Baillieston, Mount Vernon and Daldowie, all of which are located on the East side of Glasgow.
The most difficult aspects of this distribution were managing it to ensure that everyone in the constituency area received the report and also dealing with areas of new housing, which was particularly challenging in Bridgeton and Parkhead areas which are close to Glasgow City Centre where a large amount of new housing was built as part of the Commonwealth Games regeneration programme. The main issue that we faced here was that unlike areas where new houses are built on greenfield sites, this housing was built in area where housing previously existed and was demolished, resulting in the maps of these areas changing, removing some streets that once existed from the map of the area and adding new streets that were not shown in the map.
We used our GPS tracking system to check that the distribution area was covered properly – i.e. that we did not miss any areas or even streets. This was an important part of the management of the distribution because with such a large area, it is very easy to miss areas or streets by mistake, especially when the geography of some of the area has changed.
