Snow Hill Growth Strategy

Snow Hill Masterplan, launched in 2015, hinted at what could be possible around Snow Hill Station, the area south of St Chads and Great Charles Street Queensway.

Colmore BID has long held the ambition to lead the charge in doing away with the not-fit-for-purpose Snow Hill Station and breaching the barrier that the A38 makes between the District and the Jewellery Quarter.

We were determined to do what we could to make sure that the promise of Snow Hill masterplan didn’t go unfulfilled and the announcement in 2016 that the then Chancellor of the Exchequer was giving £2m for further work on the Masterplan was taken as our cue to get involved and stay involved. We now have meaningful representation on all three levels of governance in what has come to be known as Snow Hill Growth Strategy and we are pleased that two Colmore BID businesses are playing a key role in the feasibility work.

The fruits of our ambition in this area may well be on the far side of our next BID term, but we will continue to push to make our District t for 21st Century business and urban life.
