THE council is set to revoke historic byelaws on the regulation of the cleaning of common property.

They were made back in the 1980s under the Civic Government (Scotland) Act and are currently in force in Inverclyde.

Their purpose was to deal with the regulation of cleaning of common property such as stairs, basements, closes and paths within blocks of flats.

All local authorities have to review their byelaws every 10 years.

A report drawn up by officials says there appears to no longer be any requirement for the byelaws today.

Councillors will be asked to rubberstamp their removal at a forthcoming meeting on June 13.
