AM’s disappointment at proposed court closure

MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has expressed his disappointment at the Lord Chancellor’s recent decision to close Abergavenny Magistrates Court.

The decision to close Abergavenny, together with Caerphilly Magistrates Court, was the outcome of a consultation announced in June 2014. The workload from both courts will be transferred to Newport Magistrates Court and Cwmbran Magistrates Court.

Speaking on Wednesday, Mr Ramsay said:

“I am very disappointed with this decision, which will mean a loss of local justice in the area, and will be writing to the Minister with my views.”
