The Jurong-Clementi Town Council (JCTC) has advised a resident to remove items from outside his unit after a wheelchair user told Stomp she has been finding difficulty moving along the common corridor.

Stomper Rosalind said her neighbour at Jurong East Avenue 1 has been 'hoarding' items and that she has been dealing with the situation since August.

She posted a video of the clutter in a Facebook Reel.

"They do not care about wheelchair users," she said.

In response to a Stomp query, a JCTC spokesperson said they are aware of the case.

"The resident had just shifted in few months ago, and left some items at the common areas as he was in the midst of relocating them," the spokesperson said.

"We have visited the resident before to advise him to vacate the items for safety reasons.

"We have made another visit to the unit on Dec 6 to inspect the site.

"The resident was at home and has been advised to remove the excessive display items within fourteen days as he claimed that he needed more time to relocate the items.

"Our officers will make a follow-up inspection to ensure compliance."
