The LPM go-live for Merton Borough was delayed until 8 July (due to the resourcing implications of The Wimbledon Championships) and therefore front counters did not change and contact points did not start until this date. Merton contact points therefore first opened on the Wednesday of that week (10 July). The MPS website was update to reflect these changes at this stage. 15 of the remaining 16 Boroughs listed are currently planning to go-live with LPM and implement the changes to public access on 16 September, with their contact points first opening on the Wednesday of that week (18 Sept) and the website will again be updated to reflect these changes at this stage. The final borough (Croydon) is currently planning to go-live with LPM and implement the changes to public access on 7 October, with its contact points first opening on the Wednesday of that week (9 Oct) and the website being further updated at this stage to reflect this.
