HM Courts and Tribunals Service Piloting Flexible Operating Hours

HM Courts and Tribunals Service are investing over £1 billion to reform our courts and tribunals to deliver swifter justice, that is modern, more accessible and better meets the needs of all of our service users. We have recently developed proposals to test flexible operating hours in courts and tribunals and have discussed these at a number of the engagement groups we host. We are proposing to run flexible operating hours in six pilot courts to test how we can improve access to justice for everyone, by making  the service more convenient, and use court rooms as effectively as possible. We aim to start the pilots from May 2017  for six months.

Proposed locations
The provisional pilot sites we have identified for flexible operating hours include:
  • Crown Court – Newcastle Crown Court & Blackfriars Crown Court
  • Magistrates’ Courts – Sheffield Magistrates’ Court & Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court
  • Civil/ Civil & Family Courts – Brentford County Court & Manchester Combined Justice Centre.
