How can I discover additional data the status of the conservation areas in Battersea?

Myself and my partner are planning to buy in Battersea. Can we check that the property is in a conservation area?

Conservation areas categorise neighbourhoods designated as being of historic or architectural significance. The benefits of such restrictions include more aesthetically pleasant surroundings, but they create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities.


I am purchasing with OneSavings, what do we need to check?
