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.
