Admin/Biographical History Following the 1929 Local Government (Scotland) Act, Renfrewshire County Council took responsibility for the administration of the County. The large towns of Paisley, Greenock and Port Glasgow were responsible for all local services except education, valuation and electoral registration, which were County responsibilities. The smaller towns of Renfrew, including Inverkip and Gourock were confined to more local matters. The County Council assumed responsibility for all services except parks and recreation for the remaining small settlements, for example Bishopton and Clarkston, commonly known as the landward area.
