Smallbrook Queensway was designed in the 1960s by local architect, James Roberts, who also designed the nearby Rotunda. Its architecture embraces the age of the motorcar with its long sweeping curve and fine detailing. There are proposals to demolish and alter the building with a mixed-use development.

It is important that we do not lose this unique piece of architecture. Our Planning Committee is opposed to its demolition and we are partnering with Brutiful Birmingham in campaigning to save it. The building can be saved, it can be refurbished and it can be brought back into positive, viable re-use.

There is an online petition which we urge you to support.
