HM Courts and Tribunals Service expenditure on maintenance each year since 2016 is provided below:

£000s

2016-17

2017-18

2018-19

2019-20

Maintenance and repairs

71,274

80,478

90,890

48,600

1 Maintenance and repairs expenditure includes fixed maintenance, variable and planned works.

2 2019-20 figures are actual costs until December 2019 and are not full year maintenance costs for 2019-20.

Information relating to annual maintenance costs for 2015/16 financial year is not available on our current systems and we are unable to extract on a similar basis. Therefore we have not provided here due to the disproportionate cost of doing so.

HM Courts & Tribunals Service seeks to make sure that the court and tribunal estate is in the best possible condition to provide appropriate court and hearing room facilities.
