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.

Baseline: £10.96m
Forecast: £4.52m
Variance: -58.79%
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.
