Response and recommendations on the proposals for the rationalisation of the court estate

Date published: 26 November 2015

On 29 January 2015 the Northern Ireland Courts & Tribunals Service (NICTS) published a consultation document seeking views on proposals to rationalise the current court estate and close a number of court buildings.


In summary the consultation sought views on:

  • A reconfiguration of the existing court boundaries to take account of changes to local government districts in Northern Ireland;
  • A range of proposals to rationalise the court estate; and
  • The concept of dedicated civil and family centres and the brigading of criminal business.
