(1) Save as otherwise expressly provided in this Ordinance and subject to rules made thereunder, every notice or order issued or made under this Ordinance shall be served by delivering or tendering it to the person named therein or the person on whom it is required to be served under this Ordinance.
(2) When such person cannot be found or the notice or order cannot be so delivered or tendered, the service of the notice or order may be made by delivering or tendering it to any officer or such person or to any adult male member of the family of such person residing with him or, if no such officer or member can be found, by affixing a copy thereof on the outer door or on some conspicuous part of the premises in which that person ordinarily resides or carries on business or personally works for gain, and also by affixing a copy thereof in some conspicuous place in the office of the authority or officer issuing or making it and, where possible, in some conspicuous part of the property to which it relates:
Provided that, if such authority or officer so directs, the notice or order may be sent by registered post in a letter addressed to the person named therein, or on whom it is required to be served, at his last known residence, address or place of business or work.
