Birmingham's 13 grottiest eyesores that residents want to see tackled in 2024

It’s a new year, and BirminghamWorld readers are ready to see some changes in Birmingham and have identified 16 of the city's grottiest eyesores

Birmingham is full of fantastic, beautiful buildings. But just like every city, it has its fair share of eyesores.

Architecture is pretty subjective, and this of course can lead to different opinions. But we wanted to find out which buildings and landmarks in the city Brummies want to see tackled 2024 - either knocked down or regenerated.

We asked our readers what they thought the grottiest eyesores, and they didn’t hold back. After receiving dozens of comments on our social media, we have listed some of the most mentioned places and issues that Brummies don’t want to see below. 

Some of the eyesores include historic buildings that have been left derelict and residents want to see them saved or restored to their former glories this year. Others are areas blighted by fly-tipping and neglect.

Let's take a look at what our readers think are the city's grottiest eyesores that need removing or some serious TLC.
