Court site to be sold

hammersmith-magistrates-court-1300Hammersmith Magistrates Court is to be closed and the site sold.

The Ministry of Justice has announced plans to close the court, on Talgarth Road, and sell it for development.

The council are not happy about the closure. “This proposal represents the latest of this government’s many attacks on access to justice for our residents,” said Cllr Michael Cartwright, H&F Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour.

“There is a very real danger of those who find it difficult to travel, including elderly and disabled residents, being denied justice all together. This is a case of the government putting cost-cutting before people – and we won’t stand for it.”
