Four Rutherglen families finally won their battle for urgent re-housing and a move from a water-sodden tenement - after four years of protests and appeals.
Rutherglen’s Gingerbread group, for single parents, were told to pay up or get out of their premises after a hire charge was suddenly introduced on the building they used.
A councillor slammed the deal which transferred more than 1000 Castlemilk homes to the Scottish Special Housing Association.
Bikers lost out in their attempts to have a scrambling track at Cathkin Braes, as nearby Carmunnock residents claimed it would be too much of a disturbance for them.
A councillor claimed that Rutherglen and Cambuslang had become garbage blackspots.
