Is scaffolding costing as much as repair?

COULD I say that the town centre in particular is very clean and tidy?

It is a credit to our local council workman and I wish to record that I, for one, am very appreciative of his work and dedication.

On the other hand, some other Calderdale department, the one in charge of our town hall, is leaving a lot to be desired.

The scaffolding at the main door end would now seem to be a regular feature. Is it possible someone at council level could give us an idea of how much it is costing to keep this eyesore in place, and as to whether we are now approaching any possibility that the cost is, by now, near the repairs estimate?

The scaffolding company never had it so good.
