An excellent result for all concerned. Apart from all those who lose out, of course…

New national park sends prices soaring

The creation at the end of next month of what is predicted to become the UK's most visited National Park is set to provide a significant boost to property prices, it is claimed... Property prices within the South Downs National Park could increase upwards by 10% as estate agents use national park status to improve the desirability of the area, a conference heard. It could also mean more second home owners in the area and fewer local people being able to afford property, the conference organised by chartered surveyors Smiths Gore and solicitors Adams & Remers, was also told...

  • Any truth in the rumour (I’m about to start) that the CML are lobbying to turn the entire country into a National Park? 10% increase in average price at the drop of a hat. Lovely!

  • “what is predicted to become the UK’s most visited National Park”

    But won’t that mean that the place will be crawling with plebs and chavs, thereby encouraging the present, privileged, residents to sell up?

    The expression plebs and chavs is not my personal view but what I guess would be the reaction of the current residents, (who in all probability live on a different planet to Joe Public), to all those visitors.

  • Nice, if you like sharing your street with BTL rent boys or empty houses. There goes the neighborhood spirit again.

    Neo regeneration has a lot to answer for. Property before people!

    How about catering for a lost generation instead, or would that make a mockery of the sacred neo status quo.

    Neo Labour, where nothing is real and fantasy/disaster (if they are not one) balances clumsily on a knifes edge from day to day.

    Nothing more than a complete load of nonsense.

    For starters the title of the article almost implies it has already happened – it has not.
    I would also point out that the reason it has not been given NP status before is because there is not much here ( because I’m in it ) that would normally be called “special” – in my opinion.

    The designation will not do much in reality to get people to “come and see it” or “visit it”.
    Whilst I understand the eagerness of everyone interviewed to drum up business and make some money it is quite likely nothing will really change.

  • If I am honest, I quite like what I have seen of the South Downs but if you want a similar landscape and countryside together with far friendlier people then give me the the Yorkshire Wolds anytime.
