30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A con­sor­tium of lo­cal busi­ness­men launched a last ditch bid to bring Clyde back to Shaw­field and save the sta­dium from the de­vel­oper’s bull­doz­ers.

A £7.5 mil­lion plan to to­tally re­fur­bish Whit­law­burn was given the back­ing of the South East Area Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee.

Plan­ning per­mis­sion was granted for a new £2 mil­lion pri­vate hous­ing devel­op­ment on a derelict site on Cath­cart Road.

Plans for a ma­jor hous­ing ini­tia­tive on Ruther­glen’s King Street to help the el­derly and hand­i­capped in­te­grate fully into the com­mu­nity were launched by Ruther­glen Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.

Ruther­glen was set to ben­e­fit from £7 mil­lion thanks to a loop­hole in a spe­cial agree­ment be­tween Glas­gow Dis­trict Coun­cil and the banks.
