Take a trip down memory lane in the Herald archives

Bearsden Town Council was worried that plans to re-organise local government in Scotand would result in the disappearance of Bearsden as a separate entity.

A White Paper outlining the various proposals prompted the council to write to the Home Department in Edinburgh to seek clarification on the issue.

The letter asked to be kept informed on any development that will effect the burgh.

Two committees were set up under the Secretary of State to investigate the implications of the proposals, but the thorn in the side of Bearsden Town Council was that these committees refused to divulge their findings.

They argued that a report will be published when final conclusions are reached.
