The Mayor


In answer to MQ1215/2013 you stated that it is important that new contact points "provide suitable access for all in our communities and that effective signage and information is in place"; that "suitable access and adjustments will be made as appropriate" and that "the MPS is currently reviewing the locations which have been identified at a local level, to ensure suitable provision is in place". What is the outcome of the MPS's review? How many of the proposed new contact points are fully accessible? Please list those that are currently not and the changes proposed to ensure they are fully accessible.

The review is still on-going, but the large majority of Contact Points that will open by the end of June will meet accessibility requirements. For those that do not yet meet requirements, arrangements will be in place as soon as possible thereafter to enable appropriate access to the police at Contact Points.
