NEW Scot­tish Govern­ment pow­ers were set to be used to tar­get slum land­lords in a no­to­ri­ous part of the South Side.

The coun­cil wanted min­is­ters to des­ig­nate Go­van­hill as an En­hanced Enforcemen­t Area (EEA), which would give of­fi­cials the author­ity to crack down on rogue prop­erty ty­coons.

Land­lords with prop­er­ties in an EEA can be told to sub­mit to a crim­i­nal record check, pro­duce a build­ings in­surance pol­icy and pro­vide safety cer­tifi­cates.
