Local Court Closures Confirmed

A number of our local courts are to close - after the Government last year published a list of Court buildings at risk of closure as part of a £700m modernisation programme to update buildings and IT systems.

After a review announced in July 2015, the Ministry of Justice now say the following are set to close:

  • Corby Magistrates’ Court
  • Kettering County Court
  • Kettering Magistrates’ Court
  • Bedford and Mid Beds Magistrates’ Court and Family Court
  • Bedford County Court and Family Court
  • St Albans County Court

Consultation with the departmental trade unions on staffing impacts will take place over the coming months and all buildings are scheduled to shut within two years.
