Isles of Scilly Police made the decision to close the road to vehicles after high winds overnight on Sunday (January 26th).
PC Lisa Woolley wrote on social media: "Please avoid walking past the building due to the risk of scaffolding coming lose."
Springfield Court, a row of late Victorian terraced houses by St Mary’s Hall Hotel, is currently having a new roof installed.
The Council's Acting Chief Executive Craig Dryden said builders would be on the islands today to make sure the scaffolding is secure.
Elsewhere, a tree came down near the entrance to Five Islands Academy, which has now been cleared along with several other fallen trees. There were also reports of a downed fence, lost roofing tiles and damage to the new solar garden at the airport.
