At least 10 large tail lift vans parked around numbers 38 Begbrook lane.

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

10 maybe more large tail lift vans parked on the pavements around 38 Begbrook lane. This is an absolute farce than individuals can get away with behaviour like this.

A concerned resident reported this to you back in November and until now nothing has been done. We will not stand for this as residents of this community. The problem has defiantly worsened since Last November and the vehicles are now being parked nearer the school making it hazardous for children, parents and other road users. It’s starkly obvious that a business is being operated here. If the person concerned in living in an HMO, then why aren’t you using your enforcement powers be used? This is causing a lot of bad sentiment in the community and I urge you as the council responsible to do something about this.

And another thing there is currently another application that has been submitted to planning for an Eight Bedroom HMO at 20 Dryleaze Road. Yes that’s right 8 Bedrooms in a semidetached house. In affect turning it into a hostel. This should be rejected as this will only further exacerbate the already very precarious parking situation here. The public is fast losing trust in the council ability to deal with these very real concerns of the residents. Please send enforcement officers to our area immediately to ascertain what is happening and gauge the public mood.

I shall now forward all my concerns to our local councillors who I’m sure will be also contacting in due course. Please, Please can you urgently look into this.

The vans are constantly being worked on !! they start their vehicles up leaving them running for 15 mins minimum 7 days a week and waking local residents up and STILL NOTHING . No idea why I keep posting on here but I will continue just for the evidence and keep all the responses just in case.

  • Its just a shame that the residents of our community are not being listened to to. The main culprits in this are the council themselves. They allow this to happen with their incentivized push for more HMO's. They do nothing about the anti social behavior that results. This for example is from a house that's being illegally used as a HMO. I've seen this reported on this site countless times. WHY WHY!! has nothing been done about this.? Where is the owner of the property? Why isn't he/she being held to account? Why cant the council directly take over the management of this cluster of properties? Why are this residents having to put up with this? Looks like Dryleaze Road is next in line for this kind of a fiasco as there's an Eight bedroom one coming down the pipeline. Despite 30 + objections I feel the council will allow this to the community's detriment. So sad.

  • Having just walked past the multiple vans,it’s very unsafe as it allows undesirable people to hide in the shadows,saw a couple of people hiding,up to no good. The first mugging will happen soon.

  • Please my lovely council. Please, please, pretty please take us seriously when were pleading for your help. you have the necessary enforcement powers to resolve this. Under the HMO legislation that you so proudly masquerade when collecting fees your able to take over the management of an unlicensed HMO. You can force a landlord, even when he/she is absent to do something about this. This is getting dangerous now. ? as you can see from he picture this is now a potential fire risk. This leakage has come from those vehicles. Look in the garden and you'll find jerry cans there!! Why do we pay council tax? Where does our money go?

  • How come you can report a business being run from a home in Birmingham and not Bristol?!

    These vans are antisocial and a hazard to public safety, but so far that hasn't washed. If you know the number of the property, report them here: https://www.bristol.gov.uk/ housing/ problems-from-another-property

    Failing that: https://www.gov.uk/ report-an-unregistered-trader-or-business

    And write to the newspapers.

  • Numbers 38 and 40 are the culprits to all of these problems. The owner is in America but also lives in Winterbourne for 6 months of the year. I’m sure they don’t really care what’s going on in their property but this has not only become hazardous, it has also become unsafe for all that live in the street plus a danger to school children when traveling to school. There is a bungalow around the corner they continue to park directly in front and have bent over both signs that I have reported before but instead of challenging the culprits the council just replace the signs. The owner of the bungalow are really nice people and this is out of order. This can’t continue the council/ police should sort this problem out before something serious happens!! Oh and just to add to the list there is a VW golf that has no tax mot or insurance since last October and I have reported this 5 times in all even to the police and it’s still there. Seems to be if they can’t find the owner they can’t Fine so they leave it. Strange really just thinking if there was is an accident involving the VW and the car is still there who would be at fault ?

  • Unfortunately council nowadays and especially Bristol City Council are all about looking after their cash flows. That is to ensure a nice fat profit for themselves to pay their extortionate salaried directors (not the everyday staff that have to deal with the public front of house). They blew our money on failed investment schemes in Iceland back in 2008/2209 and never got paid back and now they have been unleashed onto the public to extort as much as they can from us. They’ve been doing this for the best part of a decade now. They do this by bringing in money making scams disguised as doing good for the public: How laughable!! For example: Landlord licensing: Designed to only extract fees from honest landlords who comply with the law. These fees bring in millions for the councils. Yet when they have to deal with a situation like this one (with an unlicensed HMO) they have a can’t be bothered attitude because it means spending money out of their own kitty. Especially when the landlord is unlicensed and can’t be prosecuted. This is an unequivocal truth that they are only concerned about inward revenue streams and not about public safety at large. If it was then this issue would be addressed more seriously. They have no inherent interest is resolving this issue. They have at their disposal the required powers to take over this property/properties should they need to. I’m not making this up. Under legislation they can take over the management of a property should the owner not cooperate. Why hasn’t this been done? Why are residents continuously reporting this time after time to little avail? Council nowadays provide very little in the way of a genuine service for your council tax money. The only enforcement they will do is if it profitable for them: Like parking charges for example. This has been reported to the local press. The Fishponds Voice featured this in their last edition and I agree this need to be more widely publicise to shame this money grabbing council into doing something about this.

  • Taken at 7:09 am approximately this morning, parked across from the school on singke yellow line

    Send a story to the Bristol Evening Post here: https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/ contact-us/ Local papers love this sort of stuff

    Also, to name and shame the landlord, go here. It will cost a small amount, I'm afraid, but it'll give you details of who to shop and maybe even an address:

  • Hi Nicola

    I’m not sure if you have been made aware of the issues we have with the residents populating numbers 38 & 40 Begbrook Lane. I believe these houses are not classed as HMO but there are around 15 people living in each. This causes not only massive parking issues - with up to 16 large box vans parking all along the street, but damage such as that caused to the sign post opposite Begbrook primary school. These residents continue to work on their vans anytime from 6am through to midnight using unsafe practices where parents and children passing by could come to harm . These residents leave litter all down the road, they fly tip old furniture, and mattresses, and leave oil and petrol spills over the road - which was reported. There are a lot of unhappy residents distressed by the constant running of engines all hours of the day and night, and the mess the residents of these properties continue to make on what once was a lovely street. This has been reported in the fishponds voice in March and despite residents documenting complaints on the council website ‘fix my street’ many times plus reporting to the police - these problems continue to escalate. I will forward this email to ‘fix my street’ once again and also to all potential candidates running for the councillor position for the Frome Vale Ward . A typical day on this street is shown below, please can you help?
