Knowle West Future: Your voice, Your choice


Knowle West Future (KWF), is looking for  local residents, councillors and representatives of community organisations and companies to help us achieve a thriving community in the future through the Knowle West Regeneration plans and other initiatives.

We already have people from Knowle West Alliance,  Filwood Community Centre (FCC), Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC), Northern Slopes Initiative (NSI); Youth Moves and re:work; but we would love to see others involved.

We have set off in a new direction.

We are focussing on the following:

  1. Supporting initiatives deliver regeneration – such as We Can Make, Filwood Broadway improvements etc.
  2. Providing neutral space, with Knowle West Alliance, for discussions to happen about the regeneration
  3. Reviewing and commenting on the high level planning documents that set the direction for the regeneration and our area.

Please join us if you can, either by attending discussions/events or by keeping in touch. You would be very welcome.


We will be sorting out our response to the local Plan, how design codes for buildings will help deliver homes, holding the first regeneration mingle, how we are going to deliver the new community led Knowle West Planning Protocol – and links with Thriving South Bristol.

When – Weds 15th May, 5pm to 7pm

Where – Filwood Community Centre, Barnstaple Road

All welcome to turn up and  help us work out how we are going to respond to the draft Plan.

It is important that we respond positively to the Plan, as the Plan sets out how individual pieces of land (eg: the ex-Swimming Pool site on Filwood Broadway) is to be used in the future.
