A schedule of the proposed dates for court closures and information on the transfer of work.
A full consultation on court estate reform took place in 2010. Following this, the Secretary of State decided to close 93 magistrates’ courts and 49 county courts. This decision was made using the principles of the national estates strategy and responses to the consultations.
Tranches 1 to 5 of the programme are now complete, with 89 magistrates’ and 48 county courts closed. Tranche 6 and 7 will see the remaining sites close by September 2014.
