Written response from the Mayor 09 September 2013

The MPS Public Access project has been running since 2011. As part of the project, the MPS has undertaken wide ranging borough level engagement.

The feedback from this exercise assisted in shaping the final landscape of front counters which was promoted via MOPAC publicity outlets in March 2013. This included maps and documentation available via the website and an extensive programme of face-to-face engagement with the public during open meetings held in every borough.

To publicise the new arrangements, the MPS has updated their internet site to provide improved access to on-line services and information on local public access. Additionally a leaflet explaining these changes is being delivered to households across London as part of the LPM roll out.
