Its been that way for over 18 months (since I moved here). I think you will find that even though there is far less its still a work in progress.

Just an update, we visited today and there is scaffolding but it is only to a small part of the cathedral. The building is absolutely magnificent! Well worth visiting despite ongoing works. Do the free tour, the guides are so knowledgable! To be honest, I found this cathedral more interesting and thought provoking than westminster abbey!

Indeed, the scaffolding at the present time, six months after the OP's initial enquiry, is confined to the east section. It's almost at the end of a 20 year refurbishment. In the mid 1990's it was the tower and spire that where covered in scaffolding and it was the West Front during the Millenium.
