Make a public liability claim

If you have suffered property damage or personal injury that you consider to have been caused by Perth & Kinross Council, you may be able to claim compensation.

Compensation will only be considered if it can be shown that the Council is legally liable. This will involve the claimant proving that the Council has been negligent in their obligations to the public.
