Houses in conservation areas sell at a premium and show a greater appreciation in value than those in other areas. This is even after adjusting for the effects of the kind of property involved and where it is located. These are just some of the findings of the first, rigorous, large-scale, analysis of the effects of conservation areas on house prices in England. The research was funded by English Heritage and undertaken by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
