Exciting plans to build a new green business park on the old hangar site on Hengrove Way are being realised, as construction company Midas moves onto the site. Work will start in February to provide 40,000 square feet of workshop and office space, which could support up to 350 jobs locally.
Local residents are invited to take part in a naming competition for the name of the business park itself, the ‘Work Hub’ within the business park, and the new access road from Hengrove Way. The competition is available online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/filwoodgreen, while paper versions are being distributed throughout the local area. To find out more about the development, visit www.filwoodgreen.co.uk.
The £11m project is being taken forward by Bristol City Council, with £5.37m of funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and additional support from the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership.
