New regeneration bid for Knowle West
NEW plans for businesses, housing and green spaces for Knowle West and Filwood will be discussed by Bristol City Council's cabinet next week.
The proposals, which include a new business park that is expected to lead to the creation of around 200 new jobs, are the latest for the area.
Plans to demolish hundreds of homes as part of a regeneration of Knowle West and Filwood were scrapped after a public outcry last year.
A report to councillors tonight will put forward proposals for 2,000 new homes alongside community and commercial development.

The latest proposals include new or improved homes on land bordering Hartcliffe Way and Airport Road,
The so-called green business park would be built on Hengrove Way in Filwood on a site that used to house an aircraft hangar.
The site has been standing empty since the closure of Whitchurch airfield to traffic in 1956.
The £11m park is being designed specifically for new businesses and smaller firms.
It is hoped funding for the project will come from the European Regional Development Fund and the West of England's Regional Growth Fund.
A likely condition of European funding is that the development should be completed by 2015.
The land for the business park is currently owned by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) who have agreed to provide it to Bristol City Council.
It is expected that around 120 businesses will be based at the new park, potentially creating 180 new jobs and safeguarding a further 170 jobs.
