SCTS Move to Create Glasgow Tribunals Centre

The Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service (SCTS) has announced plans for a new Tribunals Centre at 3 Atlantic Quay in Glasgow.

According to SCTS, with 34 hearing rooms for cases to be heard, the design of the centre will provide excellent facilities for all tribunal users, and specific support for young users with additional support needs. Additionally, the centre will provide facilities for vulnerable witnesses to give evidence to both Glasgow Sheriff Court and the High Court.

During 2018, the SCTS-supported Housing and Property and Health and Education Tribunal Chambers will move into the new Centre. The HMCTS-operated social security tribunal will move at a similar time with other tribunals HMCTS services to follow at a later date.

The SCTS provides support to many of Scotland’s devolved tribunals and is making preparations for the future transfer of the UK reserved tribunals operations in Scotland, currently provided by HMCTS.

“The creation of the new Tribunals Centre in Glasgow is the latest important development in the evolution of the Scottish Tribunals,” said Lady Smith, President of Scottish Tribunals. “The premises will act as a hub for tribunals supported by SCTS, providing a range of modern facilities and services for tribunals users. They will also offer a separate, appropriately designed space, for vulnerable witnesses and users, including for witnesses providing evidence for Sheriff and High Court cases in Glasgow. This co-located approach to provision for the tribunals should be regarded as a flagship for the administration of justice in Scotland in the 21st century.”
