Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Plans for a £40mil­lion re­gen­er­a­tion of a derelict site in Ruther­glen were un­veiled, with the aim of cre­at­ing hun­dreds of new jobs if it was given the go-ahead.

Res­i­dents in Burn­side ex­pressed their fears over a tow­er­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions mast that was be­ing erected in their area.

An an­gry Ruther­glen res­i­dent hit out at the new park­ing per­mit scheme that was be­ing en­forced near the lo­cal train sta­tion.

Con­tro­versy was con­tin­u­ing to sur­round the con­struc­tion of a de­cant school fa­cil­ity at Loch and St An­thony’s pri­maries, with par­ents and res­i­dents ob­ject­ing to the plans.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions were un­der­way af­ter wear and tear caused the col­lapse of a wall at a chem­i­cal plant in Cam­bus­lang.
