The move will allow the council to better review its service delivery and spending and make cuts over the next few years.
A spokeswoman said: "We will be working with our Neighbourhood Partnerships to enable them to influence how we deliver this service in the future.
"The number staff who will have their contracts transferred over is still being worked through, but it is in the region of around 50 from across the two areas."We are not planning for any major redundancies and will be transferring the service over as it is for the first few months.
"During that time we will be able to see how the service as a whole can work more effectively and take into account the feedback we get from local communities and feedback from staff."
