Save Aston Manor Transport Museum sign now

This important part of Birmingham's heritage is under threat!

The Aston Manor Road Transport Museum offered £350,000 to buy the grade II-listed building but the offer has been rejected amid complex disagreements over the valuation, potential lease arrangements and issues over unpaid rent.

City finance chief Coun Randal Brew said that the council had subsidised the museum to the tune of £650,000 over the last 15 years.

Museum supporters said it had not cost the council anything, but has been using the Victorian tram depot rent free. The sum was a paper transfer from one council department, the museum service, to another, the property division.

In return for free rent, museum volunteers have maintained and covered the running costs of the historic listed building – more than £10,000 last year – modernised the facilities and honoured commitments to community engagement.
