Site of new supreme court named

PUBLISHED December 15, 2004

Middlesex Guildhall in central London will be the home of the new supreme court - provided changes to the grade II listed building meet with the approval of English Heritage and get through Westminster city council's planning process.

The lord chancellor, Lord Falconer, announced the long awaited decision yesterday in a written statement to the House of Lords.
The historic building, which faces the Houses of Parliament on the opposite side of Parliament Square, will cost £30m to renovate and will be open for business in 2008.
