A Lochgelly youngster is leading the push to get an eyesore demolished.
Isla Millar has won the backing of councillors in her quest to rid the town of an old water tower.
Councillors Mark Hood, Ian Chisholm and Linda Erskine have given their support to a campaign led by the schoolgirl to do something about the Mcgregor Avenue landmark.
Isla who is a primary six pupil at Lochgelly South and member of local environmental action group Growing in Lochgelly has launched a petition calling for the derelict water tower to be taken down.
She told The Courier: “My friends at school were asking me to go down and play in the water tower but when I went down with my mum to have a look we could see it was really dangerous.
“As well as being unsafe the building makes the area look really sad. It’s not fair that we have live with a building like this in our town.”
Isla said she started the petition at the Lochgelly Going Forward event mostly to get the pupils’ support, but lots of adults wanted to add their name as well.
“We have managed to get 150 signature in three hours,” she added.
She was also grateful for the support of the Lochgelly councillors in her attempts to improve the town.
Mr Hood said: “We have been trying to have this building demolished for some time but because it’s in private ownership, it’s been difficult.
“I’ve had to ask council officers to intervene in the past to secure the building and make it safe. New legislation means if we can get the support of the community, we can take steps to take over the ownership of the site and have the building demolished.”
Isla added: “If the water tower was gone, I think we could make this a really nice part of our town.
“If anyone would like to add their name to the petition please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.”
