Nice green wall effect on them arches.
It's a shame they don't use most of them arches to make a nice concourse area for Snow hill station. And use the waste land for taxi and bus stops

The area has been cleared because they're going to start constructing the 3rd access into Snow Hill imminently.

I’m sure certain railway related operations do not require planning permission as such

This could be classed as a much needed escape route for safety reasons and to safely handle capacity (aswel as an entrance) which would come under their operations and not require planning

Perfect for some London Bridge style Restaurants or Bars. Give them a deep clean, remove all the weeds from the brick above and rent them out.

Win win, new Income for Network rail and new life added to a run down area. Right between Snow Hill offices and the Jewellery Quarter.

Could also create a great little public space too.

When it's completed, will they change the name of the tram stop back to Snow Hill again? I seem to remember they changed it to St Chads because the interchange hadn't been built and it was considered confusing, but when the interchange is built that reason would be gone.

I don't think so as it'll still be a separate station, they'll probably just be referred to on passenger information as 'St Chads for Snow Hill station'.
