Facilities

Conferences can take place in our conference suites but can also be arranged at solicitors' offices, a court building or other convenient locations. If necessary and suitable we are happy to conduct a conference over the telephone. We are able to arrange conferences outside of normal office hours (including weekends if required). Audio tape, CD, DVD and digital file playing devices are provided.

 

Disabled Access

All conference facilities are situated on the ground floor and although there is a single step we can provide ramp access on request. For the visually impaired escort assistance can be arranged. Our brochure is available on audio CD upon request. Please contact the clerks team in respect of any requirements, they'll be happy to make the relevant arrangements.

Information Technology

The clerk's room operates OneAdvanced 'Meridian' management software. All tenants have individual email addresses. The criminal team uses CJSM secure email. Instructions by secure email are welcome. 

Card Payments

Secure payments can be made by debit or credit card using WorldPay, the UK's largest provider of payment servces.

Video Conferencing

A dedicated video suite is available for out-of-area clients wishing to conduct conferences via Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams or other VoIP packages by arrangement. 

Video Hearing Suite

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic we have recently opened a designated Video Hearing Suite equipped with large monitor and video camera and microphone facilities. Hearings can now be conducted using the court's Cloud Video Platform after its recent introduction.
