Consultation for Glasgow and Strathkelvin
The consultation for the formation of Justice of the Peace courts in the sheriffdom Glasgow and Strathkelvin has started. The document is available by clickinghere. Comments have to be returned by 12 August 2008.
It is proposed that a single Justice of the Peace Court is established for the Sheriffdom of Glasgow and Strathkelvin combining the business currently dealt with by Glasgow, Kirkintilloch and Rutherglen District Courts. The court would be based at the current Glasgow District Court.
The proposal is that the courts will be created under the Scottish Courts Service in December 2008.
