But he’s getting no can park income as he’s not allowed to operate as a car park so not sure what rubbish you’re going on about!!

He's allowed to operate it for contract parking - and indeed did before the space was needed to temporarily replace the one across the road.  I don't think he had that much custom (it's a bit out of the way for Athol Street and then Covid hit) and he clearly wanted it to become a proper car park park again.  I doubt it will happen as it looks too much like taking the piss and DoI/DBC don't want the competition.

Thanks for this. And as for evidence of this; well there cars parked there daily who are presumably paying to use the plot.

There’s loads parking there all day & they’re not paying as many have already stated, use it regularly myself & never paid !

I find that very hard to believe. Very hard indeed. 

Surely Govt pay rates will be aligned to DBC'S under the PSC terms? DBC are analogous to Govt in that respect, are they not?

Yes which is why I think Amadeus’ claims above are nonsense.

Could be because DBC used to run the power station and Douglas Electricity Dept...equivalent of 70% of what is now the MEA.

Yep local authorities pensions are among the best on the Island. And they're not rushing to reform them.

DBC pension contributions were £1.757m y/e 3/21

Mr Bradley is quite a convincing man when dealing with complete idiots. You can guess which outcome it was. He sold a high risk over the top project with ‘key brands’ becoming involved in a multi million pound investment into a key regeneration asset to get a lease for almost nothing on a plot of land where he can now rake in car parking fees for doing absolutely nothing. He must have literally re-allocated £250K of revenue a year off the DOI for the cost of drawing up a one pound 99 year lease. The development (if it ever happens) will probably pay for itself in time out of car parking fees as the company that got the lease had £1 paid up capital and had shelled out for a few plans and a lease and that’s about it. If it sits there raking in car parking fees the DOI would have otherwise got for another 10 years they’re laughing all the way to the bank. 

You'd have to question what it is that Bradley has over certain past decision makers in DOI?

Don’t know what’s happening there but you now have to be in car park by c8.30 to guarantee your free all day parking
