Historic parks and gardens are listed in the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest. They intend to protect significant land that has been designed rather than natural land. 

Why are they important for planning?

Planning authorities must consider the impact of any proposed development on the park or garden’s special character and must consult Historic England where a planning application affects a Grade I or II* registered park or garden or battlefield. They will also consult the Gardens Trust on all applications affecting registered parks or gardens, regardless of the grade of the site.

Responsible organisations and guidance

The register is kept by Historic England with assistance from the Gardens Trust.
