Arbroath Sheriff Court on closure hit list

THE SCOTTISH Courts Service consultation has just announced (noon, Friday), that Arbroath Sheriff Court is one of those to be to be considered for closure under its cost-cutting proposals.

The relevant paragraph states: “Sheriff Courts and Justice of the Peace Courts should cease to be held in Alloa, Cupar, Dingwall, Arbroath, Haddington and Stonehaven, and the Court buildings and Court accommodation in those places should be closed.”
