A new court annexe to increase capacity at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court has been opened.
The building will initially hear custody cases before accommodating sheriff and jury cases.
The £3.7 million project consists of two new criminal courtrooms and a new custody suite, located within the existing Kirkcaldy police station complex at St Brycedale Avenue.
The immediate focus of the new annexe will be improved digital capability as critical business is prioritised during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Kirkcaldy’s sheriff clerk Neil Rawlings said: “I am delighted these building works are now complete.
“We will use them effectively during this challenging time and we look forward to these much-improved facilities being available to court users in the future.”
Eric McQueen, chief executive of the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service (SCTS), added: “There are so many opportunities which come with this new facility.
“We look forward to when we can welcome our court users into the new environment and we welcome the extra space and teleconferencing capability it gives us at this time.”
