HM Courts & Tribunals Service officials have held discussions with real estate agents regarding the Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court site for the purpose of understanding its potential to deliver homes and estimated value. No discussions have taken place with property developers.

London has the densest concentration of magistrates' courts in the country and we are confident access to justice can be maintained and significant savings for re-investment in our court reforms can be achieved through this closure.

Hammersmith Magistrates’ Court is expected to close by the end of October 2017.
