Answered By: 
The Mayor

The front counters at Gipsy Hill and Cavendish Road were closed on a temporary basis on 20th August 2012, as a response to police officer and staff shortages, as well as the need to manage local demand. This has been the subject of an ongoing review, with assessment of any community concern and of staff availability. No other boroughs have implemented front counter closures as a result of shortages.
