    An investigative research project into the effect of the smoking ban on licensed premises in England. The smoking ban is to come into force in England in July 2007 by the UK government as a way of improving the health of the nation. Smoking will be banned in all public places including licensed premises. This report seeks to determine how the smoking ban will affect the value of licensed premises in England. This investigative research project was chosen as the smoking ban is a controversial issue and many opinions regarding the ban and its effects exist. Information regarding the ban, its effects and solutions to minimise the effects was obtained from pub companies and also information regarding the value of licensed premises was acquired. Views and opinions were sought from the general public. Secondary data collection was also obtained in the form of articles, journals and government publications in order to gain a wider knowledge of the subject and its effects on value. The results showed that some premises will suffer a loss in value as a result of the smoking ban and some premises will not be affected. This depends on how well the premises can cater for smokers and boost trade. Those licensed premises which have outside smoking areas or which are restaurant led are less likely to be affected than those premises which have no smoking solutions. It is those premises with no solutions to minimise the risks which will undoubtedly suffer a drop in value as a result of the smoking ban.
