Conservative controlled Berwickshire DC may become the first council in Scotland to sell off its housing stock under proposals being discussed with Scottish Homes, the Scotsman reports (p5).

Members are keen to reach an early decision on transfer because of the pending restructuring of local government, in which the district may be swallowed up into a larger authority.
