Following on going work the Court has now announced the Sitting Pattern for next week . This sees Sheffield Testing remote working whilst Doncaster still has elements to come on stream .

Courts Continue to do Priority 1 Work only i.e Custody Cases , Domestic Violence etc .

This is the rota for the week commencing 27 April 2020.

This week we start the remote hearings in South Yorkshire.

These will run from Sheffield Combined Court for next week and their progress will be reviewed.

The Plan is to still move all South Yorkshire work into Doncaster Magistrates’ Court, however we will do this when we have the remote remand court dealing with most, if not all the Shepcote Lane prisoners.

We will continue to deal with priority 1 work, however we are dealing with some trials, which are priority custody trials. These are marked below in the relevant courts.
