Temporary shifts at Supreme Court Complex

Offices located at the Supreme Court Complex will be temporarily relocated to Manor Lodge, Green Hill, St Michael, from Monday, June 18, for approximately four months.

As a result, the Court of Appeal and High Courts will be closed from tomorrow to allow staff to begin the moving process.

The Records Department will, however, remain open to the public until Wednesday, June 6, during which time individuals will be able to register babies, as well as apply for death and marriage certificates. However, only urgent applications would be accepted by the Court of Appeal and High Courts for filing.

These changes are to allow for a general cleaning of the Supreme Court Complex at White Park Road, St Michael, following a number of environmental concerns raised by staff.

The move was confirmed by Registrar of the Supreme Court, Barbara Cooke-Alleyne, following a site visit at the new location last Wednesday.

 Cooke-Alleyne explained that the Civil Courts, Registration and Records Departments, Accounts, Marshals and ancillary staff would be relocated to the Manor Lodge Complex, while the Criminal Court of Appeal and the Criminal Courts would be moved to the new District “D” and “F” Magistrates’ Courts at Cane Garden, St Thomas.
