The business plan assumes that all existing Libraries staff will be made redundant across the 10 locations. These are:
Allenton, Allestree, Blagreaves, Chaddesden, Chellaston, Derwent, Sinfin, Mackworth, Oakwood, Spondon
The numbers of volunteers required, based on equivalent opening hours, and experience elsewhere in the country is approx 100 volunteers per library. This recognises much reduced working hours per person, greater coverage per shift, lower reliability in attendance, and greater turnover, and increased training time.
