Residents in Letham have reported the issue of fires at waste ground used for parking has been rekindled.
Waste ground behind Strathord Terrace has been used by neighbours as space for parking over the years.
However, a trailer parked at the site which has been used for fly-tipping caught light last week, with local residents reporting police and Scottish Fire and Rescue in attendance to extinguish the flames.
The issue of fireraising on waste ground around parts of Letham is one which Perth City South councillor Sheila McCole said has been an issue in the past.
The SNP representative said the issue has been raised with Perth and Kinross Council.
She said: “I was contacted by several residents in the Strathord Terrace and Moulin Crescent area who are extremely concerned, not only by fly-tipping, but by the recent fire-raising incident.
“Fly-tipping at this site has been an issue throughout lockdown.
“Following my contact with council officers, I am pleased they have agreed to deal with these issues as a matter of urgency and I expect to see the fly-tipped items removed this week, and a speedy resolution sought on the matter of the abandoned trailer.”
The Courier understands the mess left behind has been now been cleared up by the local authority.
