Mapesbury Estate Area

By Monica Charles

The Mapesbury Estate is a residential area that has a lot of attractive historical accommodations. Since 1982 it has been classed as a Conservation Area. With houses dating as far back as 1870, there is traditional architecture present within the area. Extensions are currently underway concerning the eastern side of Walm Lane around Blenheim Gardens NW2. Currently, the Estate is bordered to the west by Walm Lane. Shoot Up Hill is located at the rear of the properties, whilst Anson Road is situated behind properties to the North.

The Mapesbury Estate’s natural green streets accompany splendid and historic properties built as suburban villas for those commuters and day trippers requiring easy access to the City of London. The houses date back to the 19th century, most of which consist of a traditional two-storey build, attractive garden area and the additional benefits of converted attic space.

Since their inception in 1967 over 8,000 conservation areas have been created throughout England, primarily for their special architectural and historic interest. There are a number of different examples of Conservation Areas based on their primary interests. These include mining and fishing villages, historic country buildings, forms of traditional transport i.e. canals and also suburbs built in the 1800′s.

Local Councils act as the local planning authority. They will consider areas that have attracted abnormal interest by the public for designation. However, English Heritage can also designate conservation areas in London; they consult the relevant London Borough Council and seek the consent of the Secretary of State for National Heritage, who can also designate where the area in question commands wider interest.

Living in, or running a business in a conservation area requires permission from the Council before alterations or extensions can be made to the property. This even includes the fixing of satellite television dishes. The Council will give advice to those requiring guidance as the criteria for when and where permission is needed is regularly updated. If tenants are still unsure of the restrictions regarding property alteration, it is recommended that they pursue information from the Council before starting any work.

The Local Council will need to be contacted before any form of significant demolition can take place with regards to buildings, fences or walls of any size. Note that the Listed Buildings and Conservation Area Act 1990 states that a building of 115 cubic metres or less does not require consent.

Tree Preservation Orders may be installed by the Council if they feel that the specified tree contributes significantly to the Conservation Areas beneficial state. This order will be considered by the Council should they receive a request to remove a tree within the Conservation Area.

The London School of Economics has carried out extensive research which suggests that people value living in conservation areas. Properties in these areas command higher valuation and greater price appreciation. This is the case even after allowing for location and other associated factors. Research also shows that properties further inland in Conservation Areas have more value, suggesting that people enjoy being surrounded by a greater density of heritage.
