Knowle West Future: Your voice, Your choice

CAN YOU HELP OUR COMMUNITY THRIVE IN THE FUTURE?

Knowle West Future (KWF) wants to achieve a thriving community in our area, through the Knowle West Regeneration plans agreed in 2012 and other initiatives.

We already have local councillors and people from Knowle West Alliance, Filwood Community Centre (FCC), Knowle West Health Park, The Park, Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC), The Park Centre,   Northern Slopes Initiative (NSI); Youth Moves and re:work  involved. But we would love to see others involved especially local residents, local community groups and businesses.

We are focusing on the following:

  • Using working groups to examine specific issues, problems, geographical areas and finding a way forward (eg: Filwood Broadway, Knowle West Health Park etc)
  • Commenting on formal planning documents and initiatives that affect the Regeneration area. From strategic documents looking at the wider picture, through pre-planning application consultations; and when resources allow formal Planning Applications for major developments (eg: Filwood Broadway, Western Slopes, The Park, Inns Court, Northern Slopes etc.). We do not cover small developments or changes to individual properties.

Arrangements for engaging with the local residents on major planning applications; and liaison with the City Council on the Regeneration is covered by the Knowle West Alliance. For further information contact lucy.holburn@kwalliance.co.uk
