A consultation on the provision of courts services in HMCS Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Thames Valley.
A total of 121 responses were received from a wide range of interested parties including magistrates, local and district councils, individuals, MPs and others. The responses have been fully analysed against the principles of the court estate strategy along with impact assessments, equality impact assessments and any further data collected as part of the consultation process.
The initial proposal was to close six magistrates’ courts and two county courts in the HMCS Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Thames Valley area. Following the consultation, the Lord Chancellor’s decision is to close five magistrates’ courts and two county courts in the original proposal to achieve more efficient service delivery in this area.
