Councillors debated the plans to close Cumbernauld Justice of the Peace Court during North Lanarkshire Council’s full meeting last Thursday.
Councillor Heather McVey lodged a motion calling for the local authority to ask the Scottish Government to reverse the decision.
Councillor Tom Johnston, however, argued against the motion.
A Scottish Government spokeswoman said the closure will take place in November.
