The method of travel and travel times and average mileage were thoroughly researched and taken into account when considering the centralisation of the remand courts in Kidderminster. The detail is provided in the consultation document (page 9) and is also discussed in the response document.

HMCTS also provided detail of the average each way journey distance for prisoners in miles, along with the time in minutes and the number of prisoners who would be required to travel to that venue from police stations.
