Minister Maggie Barry has generously supplied us with a copy of the text of the keynote address notes given on her behalf by Minister Craig Foss.

“Value and culture : an economic framework” Ministry Of Culture And Heritage Research Paper

"...The City of Savannah includes the Savannah Historic Landmark District which includes many sites of historic importance, both regionally and nationally....
The study found that a house located within the historic district received a price premium of around 20%, compared to an otherwise similar house located outside the historic district. This is one example of hedonic pricing being applied to estimate the value of living within a heritage district. "
