Description: The aim of the Court Estate Reform Programme (CERP) 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. The objectives are: • To close a total of 140 courts in England & Wales. • To reform Local Justice Areas (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.
DCA (RAG): Green

Baseline: £0.59m
Forecast: £0.09m
Variance: -84.70%
Variance text: The current full year forecast is below the estimated figure in the approved business case, which is due to planned capital enabling works no longer being required at two sites.
Whole Life Cost: £45.44m
WLCost text: This programme is now complete. The total programme costs are lower than the business case (budget) by £18.7m. This is a result of lower than anticipated dilapidations and staff exit costs of approximately £5m, lower ICT costs of approximately £1m, and reduced enabling work costs of approximately £12m.
