    The county council says the closures mean the loss of 143 full time equivalent posts in its children's and business services. 

    They said they were holding talks with unions to limit job losses and see if staff could be offered voluntary redundancy or re-deployment.

    The authority said they were also talking to voluntary and community groups with a view to keeping some children's centre services open in some locations. 

  13. Axing children's centres will have 'detrimental effect'

    BBC News Online

    Derbyshire County Council says it is keeping open centres "where there is the most need".

    But during the consultation people said closures would mean travelling further to access services and they would have a "detrimental affect" on the health and wellbeing of children.

    The Save Belper Children's Centre group said it was worried "many vulnerable families will be left without support".
