|Description: ||The aim of the Court Estate Programme is to deliver a step change in financial efficiency in the provision of court based services by disposing of surplus buildings and making more efficient use of retained buildings.
To close a total of 141 courts in England & Wales.
To reform LJAs to increase efficiency & effectiveness.
To maintain acceptable standards of service in terms of time and travel costs incurred by court users in attending courts.
To close sub-standard accommodation and provide a court estate that can evolve in line with developing MoJ policy, such as provision of facilities for live video links and greater community involvement in how justice is administered. |

|Variance text: ||The current year (2013/14) variance of £6.4mis due mainly to lower capital enabling work costs. There is currently no capital forecast for 13/14 as the planned enabling works at Camberwell Green Magistrates' Court and Aldershot are no longer required. These were included in the Business Case (budget) values. |
|Whole Life Cost: ||£45.44m |
|WLCost text: ||This project is due to close in September 2014. The total project costs are lower than the business case (budget) by £18.7m. This is a result of lower dilapidations and lease exit costs than anticipated, £5m, lower ICT costs of £1m and reduced enabling work costs of £12m. |
