Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Plans were drawn up for a new na­ture re­serve at Malls Mire in Ruther­glen.

The Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment threw out a plan­ning ap­peal for the con­tro­ver­sial car wash at Stonelaw Road in Burn­side. The plan­ning re­porter up­held the coun­cil’s decision not to grant plan­ning per­mis­sion.

A 30 page re­view re­vealed con­cerns had been raised about the be­hav­iour of pae­dophile Alex Mor­timer be­fore he had been in­ves­ti­gated.

Par­ents with­drew their chil­dren from Cathkin Pri­mary due to two pupils they claimed were "out of con­trol".

The Cathkin Re­lief Road was in­cluded in the coun­cil's trans­port plans for the next 10 years. Although not big news at the time, the move would cre­ate con­tro­versy later in the year.
