As of 29 October there are 234 main jury courtrooms available, supported by 10 jury courtrooms in Nightingale Courts and 4 jury courtrooms in other existing HMCTS court accommodation. We understand from HMCTS that this figure has since increased to 242, and they expect the remaining enabling works to be completed over the weekend in order to meet their target of 250 jury enabled courtrooms by the beginning of November.
