Ashbourne and Matlock TICs to close

Two tourist information centres in Derbyshire are set to close, the council has announced.

Matlock’s tourist information centre is due to shut in March 2012 with Ashbourne’s closing a year later.

Derbyshire Dales District Council said the two shops were underused and closing them would help it save about £100,000 a year.

Ashbourne Town Council’s Alan Hodkinson said he was “bitterly disappointed” at the decision.

The closures would lead to the loss of about 20 jobs, the majority of which are part-time.
