The Donington loop doesn't add anything to the racing. I would like to see OP getting a second visit although judging by the recent snoozefest I doubt many people will want to see another meeting there.

So that leaves Snetterton and Knockhill, I can't see the Scottish market support a second meeting north of the border.

So in future it looks like Thruxton and Snetterton will share the second meeting.
You've missed out Croft. Any chance of a second meeting there?

Are we forgetting the recent changes to legislation for closed public road events?

We hadn't forgotten, it's just very unlikely to ever happen.

Finding a suitable venue; making it safe for racing; installing barriers; setting up a spectator areas / grandstands; fencing off a ticketed area; and closing the surrounding area for a weekend, is a huge and costly logistical challenge. Without a big sponsor, it's unlikely that ticket revenue alone would even come close to covering the costs.

If you are thinking of somewhere like the Coventry MotoFest, the only competitive element to that is a sprint. The requirements to run a single car at a time again the clock are significantly different to running a full-on race with 32 cars on track at the same time.
