Could the Mayor through TfL please investigate the situation in Upper Tooting Road with regard to this expired scaffolding licence and be in contact with the company to make sure it renews its licence or is fined?

Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed that this scaffold licence was renewed on 2 November and was replaced by TFL11084, which is valid 29 August 2020 until 31 January 2021.

Prior to the licence being renewed, TfL issued a notice to the developer on 4 September for the licence that expired at the end of August. This was followed up with several discussions with the developer that led to the licence being renewed on 2 November. As there was active communication between both parties no enforcement was required.

TfL is aware that the licence has not been displayed properly on the site and has previously contacted the licensee to request that this be displayed. TfL contacted the licensee again on 8 December and has been advised that the scaffolding will be removed by Friday 11 December. TfL’s on-street officers regularly inspect the site, and carried out a visit on Monday 14 December  and have confirmed that the scaffolding has now been removed.
