Streatham Police Station will remain open until the new site is completed. Discussions about the suitability and use of Streatham Police Station have been taking place since 2007.

Consultations took place specifically in 2009, 2011 and during the MOPAC consultations earlier this year. Owing to the age of the building, it will not meet longer term policing needs.

The current Borough Commander joined Lambeth Borough in January 2012 and was made aware reasonably soon afterwards that Streatham Police Station was on the list of MOPAC/MPS buildings being considered for disposal. The replacement facilities at Streatham High Road will take several months to complete and it is anticipated that the replacement site will be operational by the end of the year.
