A public meeting on the impact of the permanent closure of the Upper Hutt Court is to be held next week.

Next Monday at noon Courts Minister Chester Borrows will be at the meeting at the Upper Hutt Cosmopolitan Club and will talk directly to the Upper Hutt community.

The closure was formally announced in October after the earthquake-risk building had been closed for several months.

There has been concern in the community about possible effects of losing local access to services.

Monday's meeting is the result of recent talks between Mr Borrows and Upper Hutt Mayor Wayne Guppy and chief executive Chris Upton, both of whom will attend.

Justice Ministry representatives will also attend to discuss changes, including modernising the services and changes to the courts networks.
