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.Follow @csabian
