The Court is a legal body within English Law, with limited legal jurisdiction as specified by Administration of Justice Act 1977. This Act states that Warwick Court Leet accepts ‘Presentments’ from any resident living within the area now covered by the CV34 postcodes.
‘Presentments’ are matters of concern or complaint within the area – for example blocked drains or waterways, damaged Rights of Way, or dangerous buildings. Alternatively they can be matters that have given satisfaction or pleasure.
The public are invited to attend both the Spring and Autumn Courts at which they may make Presentments personally, having previously submitted them in writing to the Steward. These meetings are held in the Court House, Jury Street, Warwick, generally in March and October at dates and times which are published in the local press and on social media.
After being presented to the Jurors of the Court for consideration, and having been accepted, the Steward is asked to forward them to whichever local authority or utility company is responsible. By law, they are required to reply to the Court with their findings and intentions to resolve the matter.
