The government plans to close 91 courts and tribunals across England and Wales, and integrate or merge 31 more. 

We have launched a survey to canvas members’ views and source case studies to help us to formulate our response to the consultation on the closures. We have also produced an interactive map showing the courts affected by the proposals. The map also gives details on where the work would move to and how long it would take by public transport to get to the alternative courts.
