NHDC say 21.5 full time jobs will go saving the council an estimated �760,000 a year. But there will be growth in some job areas with ten new posts being created costing the council �328,000.
The council says it is currently discussing the proposals with staff who have until January 14 to comment.
"We will be moving into formal consultation with the trades unions through the Staff Consultation Forum early in the New Year and implementation of the final scheme will be in accordance with the council's reorganisation policy," said a council statement.
