On 31 August 2001, Frogmore Developments Ltd., a private equity company, settled the price of £2,465,000 for the land and buildings on the north side of Redland Hill, Redland, Bristol; formerly Redland College.
"The harassment began back in 2002 when I worked as the managing director of 'Edward Ware Homes'". EW
Edward Ware's company, Acraman (305) Ltd. became managing contractor. The finance director of his company gave his address as Matrix Chambers.
"During this time the company bought the entire Redland campus from The University of West of England." EW
Edward Ware took over the site, in good order, from the University of the West of England Facilities Management Team.
"The property was vandalised prior to the purchase being completed and the suspects were prosecuted." EW
Salvage gang/s expertly removed more than a hundred hardwood and wired-glass firestop doors - including every exterior door.
Several thousand square metres of firestop suspended ceiling panels and tracking were also neatly extracted.
With the buildings wide open, there followed an anarchic salvage theft and vandalism spree.
Officers from Redland police station negligently ignored the public dangers; all the crimes occuring beneath their snouts.
"The site was secure and patrolled by security; there were no accidents or incidents.” EW
Edward Ware did nothing to secure the site or buildings. He did not bother to secure the site perimeters; post warning notices; secure the entrances or shutter the structures. There was never a security presence; no guards or patrols; an absence of security company sign boards; no competent oversight of any kind.
After more than nine months possession, and after EW was warned by Martin Ashmead, a drunkard nightwatchman was installed in a caravan onsite; a start made closing the structures.
The buildings could never have arrived in their sacked and wrecked condition if there had ever been physical and human security.
"Martin Ashmead is not the Dangerous Buildings and Structures Officer, he is the Building Compliance Officer." EW
Martin Ashmead tipped off Edward Ware about my phone complaint to the Dangerous Buildings and Structures Office on 24 May, 2002. That complaint was never recorded and no site visit occured.
"Edward Ware has been in property related business's since the early 1980's. ... A number of high profile developments include The Panoramic in Clifton, the redevelopment of the former UWE Redland campus and a new urban village, Coed Darcy in Swansea with The Princes Foundation. EW
On 17 December 2002, the site was sold to Crosby Homes for £5,757,500. This represents a gross profit of £3,292,500 (134%) or £6,961 for each day of possession. Why did UWE sell the site so cheaply?
"Our philosophy is one of aiming for excellence in every respect." EW
