Registered Parks and Gardens

Historic parks and gardens are a fragile and finite resource.

Historic England maintains a 'Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England'. Registered parks and gardens are not subject to additional planning controls, but registration is a material consideration in the planning process and the impact of development proposals on the special character of the landscape will be taken into account by the council.

The main purpose of this Register is to celebrate designed landscapes of note, and encourage appropriate protection. It is hoped that, by drawing attention to sites in this way, Historic England will increase awareness of their value and encourage those who own them, or who otherwise have a role in their protection and their future, to treat these special places with due care.
