Changes to how libraries and children’s centres operate all over North Somerset have resulted in two possible redundancies.

North Somerset Council’s community access programme will involve moving libraries and children’s centres into the same buildings and installing new self-service facilities. It included plans to merge Worle Library with its children’s centre.

A children’s centre leader and nursery manager may be made redundant as part of the changes, if they cannot be found another job elsewhere in the council.

The review was launched in a bid to save £500,000 by 2019, but the council hoped to make as few redundancies as possible.

Changes to the services are expected to be completed by July.
