To deal with Oral Questions


To consider the following Notices of Motion, notice of which has been given by:


Councillor Cantrill: The Future of Cambridge Magistrates Court.

This Council currently notes the proposals for the future of Cambridge Magistrates Court, including the closure of the building with its work being relocated to existing courts in Cambridge, Huntingdon and Peterborough.


This Council also notes the current consultation being undertaken to find out the public's views on the proposals.


This Council objects to the proposals to close Cambridge Magistrates Court for the following reasons:


  i.  That Cambridge residents could be forced to travel to Peterborough or Huntingdon to attend a hearing as participants in court proceedings;

  ii.  That it dilutes the sense of place and mutual community responsibility which is valuable in underpinning the most local level of the justice system; and 

  iii.  That the impact assessment in relation to the proposals is flawed as it fails to monetise the costs to be imposed on court users.


This Council asks the Leader of the Council to write to the responsible minister, Lucy Frazer, MP setting out the Council’s objections to the proposals
