Gaywood Close Scaffolding

This scaffolding has been up outside 98-121 Gaywood Close for over a year and we’ve never seen anyone working on it. We’re chasing Metropolitan for answers

The timeline is:

  • 19 April 2019 – Scaffolding is erected at the front of the block
  • October 2019 – Nobody has been seen working on the scaffolding since it’s erected. Certain individual residents send queries
  • February 2020 – Several residents go door to door asking people to report the unused scaffolding to Metropolitan. 25 people sign
  • May 2020Metropolitan said the scaffolding had been originally put up for regular gutter maintenance and the construction company that put it up went bankrupt, hence the scaffolding wasn’t taken down. Metropolitan promised to remove the scaffolding when it was safe to do so
  • June 2020Metropolitan said the scaffolding was for works that will take place in early July
  • 6th July 2020 – Scaffolding is erected at the rear of the block


We’re currently putting the campaign on hold due to the Corona Virus. It wouldn’t currently be safe for anyone to work on the scaffolding. But when restrictions are lifted we will be insisting Metropolitan either work on the scaffolding or remove it
