Ben Hamilton “OLD” Bailie is a world-renowned designer of shared spaces, which limit the use of the motor vehicle. He is employed by local authorities to plan road schemes and is frequently employed by Bristol City Council. He is currently working on a scheme for Long Ashton in North Somerset to restrict traffic.
While apparently gaining wealth from this type of employment he also, somewhat hypocritically, obtains further wealth by running a PRIVATE CAR PARK in Kingsdown! He charges users £8 per day or part day for the privilege of parking close to the BRI.
Most users are POORLY PAID health workers from the hospital. There are 11 spaces of which 7 are in regular use. Is there any planning consent for this private car park? It’s all administered by his wife Jennifer Hill and is registered under the business name of Kingsdown Arcadia LTD. Bailie and his missus are the only two directors.
Sounds like a nice little earner …
