A religious group has withdrawn a recent application to build a mosque in Perth.
Perth Islamic Society applied for permission to construct the mosque on Jeanfield Road back in June.
The application drew six objections from residents worried about possible traffic problems.
It has now emerged a society trustee wrote to council officials on Thursday last week asking them to cancel the application.

Consultants acting for Perth Islamic Society previously told PKC a proposed on-site car park plus existing spaces at a local supermarket as well as Perth Leisure Pool would provide “adequate parking capacity … for attendees”.
Create Consulting Engineers said in their transport statement: “The results of [a] transport survey demonstrate[d] that … the prospect of some on‐street parking associated with the proposed development can never be entirely removed. However, [the] survey demonstrate[d] that attendees are committed to using the available off-street alternative parking locations [which] offer sufficient parking spaces to be able to comfortably accommodate the anticipated number of attendees.”
It is unclear whether PKC’s transport planners had fully assessed the proposed development’s likely impact on local roads before Perth Islamic Society withdrew their application.
