IT IS OUT with the new, and in with the old, as people that live in London reveal their true feelings about new homes and commercial buildings that cast a shadow of neglect over London’s much-loved heritage buildings and historical houses.
The survey of 1,627 adults, carried out by Oaksmore ISA (an innovative, FCA-regulated Alternative Investment Fund Manager) revealed 27% of people that live in London are either unhappy or angry about the sheer number of new homes and commercial buildings in their local area.
The data also found that just under 1 in 3 (30%) feel the government and local authorities should be doing more to encourage London residents to do more to protect and preserve London’s heritage and history.
What’s more, 21% of residents in London believe heritage buildings to be better-built than new builds, meanwhile 17% feel the heritage and history of London is one of the things they love most about living in this region.
The authors of the study suggest presenting investors with positive ways to help keep London’s heritage alive while looking after their personal financial health too.
