Local MP Jo Swinson wrote to East Dunbartonshire Council on behalf of a constituent whose plants were dying thanks to the Council grit bin placed against his garden wall.
The acidic run-off from the salt into the soil was threatening to leave him without any flowers or plants to enjoy.
Following the letter the Council has since responded to confirm that the bin will be removed.
Commenting Jo said:
"This is lovely news. I'm happy the constituent will be able to sit outside and enjoy the plants in his garden, hopefully this will be done soon."
