Mr Cannon is also angry at his granddaughter’s wait to have joinery work done in her Cruachan Road home. He claims a council worker stopped by when she was taking her son to nursery but then refused to carry out the work despite being still being in the area.
He said: “Common sense would tell you to do the other tenants and then come back.
“He came out of my granddaughter’s neighbour and I asked him if he could fix the door now and he told me it wasn’t council policy.”
A spokesperson for the council said the scaffolding was erected in December, adding: “The scaffolding was needed due to the nature of these works. Unfortunately the works being undertaken were delayed due to the wet weather and low temperatures, but the repair is now complete and the scaffold is being dismantled.”
On the other issue, the spokesperson said: “This is not council policy. However, when a workperson is unable to complete a repair due to ‘no access’, attempts are then made to carry out other works to fully commit the workperson to the time available. This can include arranging appointments with other customers and, due to these commitments, it means that it is not always possible to return to carry out repairs on the same day where access has not been available.”
