No Magistrates court for RCT

Written by on 29th July 2016

Pontypridd Magistrates’ Court will become the latest court in Wales to close.

It’s all┬ápart of UK justice reforms.

The Ministry of Justice announced back in February that 10 law centres in Wales would shut – including the one in Pontypridd.

The court’s final day is today, with new cases transferred to Merthyr Tydfil from next week.

It leaves Rhondda Cynon Taff without a magistrates’ court, after Llwynypia and Aberdare courts shut in 2010.

The Ministry of Justice said the decision to close a court was “never taken lightly”.
