County council services set to be affected by strike

Have your say

MANY DERBYSHIRE County Council services are among those that will be affected by tomorrow’s strike by public sector workers over proposed pension changes.

However, it is not yet known exactly what the full effect of the strikes will be on services.

Child protection services and residential children’s homes will run as usual. All other services could be affected.

Some libraries could be closed – but which ones will be affected won’t be known until tomorrow.

Buxton Museum and Art Gallery and the record office in Matlock will be open.

Call Derbyshire will be open but is likely to have reduced numbers of staff. They will handle emergency child and adult protection calls only. They will not be dealing more general enquiries such as library book renewals, school admissions, street light faults or blue badge requests.

Adult Care - Day care services are likely to be affected. The authority will be protecting the most vulnerable people in their communities and those who receive home care services will be told if they are affected. Plans are in place to ensure care will continue at county council residential homes.

Schools which will be closed include:

St George’s Primary in New Mills

Tintwistle Primary School

Burbage Primary School

Chapel High School

Buxton Community School, which will be closed to students in years 7-11

Buxton Infants School

Buxton Junior School

Fairfield Endowed Junior School

Hayfield Primary School

St Thomas More school, Buxton.
