The Built Heritage : Some British Experience



    (Department for Culture, Media and Sport, London)


This paper provides a brief overview of policy intervention mechanisms affecting the preservation of the historic environment in Britain. This covers half a million "listed buildings" in England alone. Within this policy framework, the paper then discusses stated preference valuation exercises on the built environment and the results of a long - term exercise comparing returns of listed and unlisted office properties in the UK since 1980.
