HUNTINGDON County Court's administration has been transferred to Peterborough, though the court will continue to sit in George Street until the new combined justice centre opens next June.
The three court employees, who administer the seven days' sittings each month, have been given the choice of working from Peterborough on non-sitting days or from the former HM Courts Service offices in Huntingdon Town Hall.
Pauline Cornford, HMCS's new area director for Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk, said the decision had been taken for health and safety reasons, but court users would not notice the difference.
Senior judge Robert Blomfield, who also sits part-time as a judge in criminal cases in the Crown Court, keeps his role at Huntingdon County Court.
