Details of this week’s court case

The court case against GCC’s library cuts will be heard this week. Members of the public are welcome to attend the case and watch proceedings. If you would like to do this, here is some practical information:

The hearing will begin at 10.30am on Tuesday 27 September 2011 at Birmingham Civil Justice Centre. We won’t get the court number or the judge until the day before, but it is not a massive building and will be easily found.  We have been advised that members of the public should arrive by at least 10am as there are often queues first thing.

The court building is in the city centre of Birmingham, a 15 minute walk from New Street station. If anyone is planning to drive, there is no dedicated public car parking at the court, but there is a map showing public car parks in the city centre here (downloadable PDF).
To walk to the court from New Street Station:

  • Exit New Street Station through the Pallasades Shopping Centre and down the ramp onto New Street.
  • Go straight across the intersection onto Corporation Street (a main street going uphill with lots of bus stops)
  • Walk up Corporation Street until you reach the junction with Bull Street
  • Turn left onto Bull Street, the court building is on your right.

A googlemap showing the location of the court is here.
Hope to see some of you there.
