The general condition of Crown Court buildings and other infrastructure is adequate, but I recognise that improvements are needed in some locations.

That is why we are investing £220 million in the two years to March 2025 for essential modernisation and repair work across the court and tribunal estate. This will minimise disruptions, retain the heritage of the estate, and ensure it is fit for the future.

We are working to ensure that those buildings most in need of investment are prioritised, providing a step forward in improving the quality of the court estate.
