Historic Parks & Gardens and the Planning System

The English planning system can seem complicated and in a worthy attempt to make things a bit clearer, our national body, The Gardens Trust, have published a new booklet titled The Planning System in England and the Protection of Historic Parks and Gardens.

The booklet is aimed at providing guidance for local Planning Authorities, but may also be useful for anyone who wants to know how the planning system is supposed to operate for historic parks and gardens.

An electronic copy is available here. For a printed copy please contact The Gardens Trust at or by phone on 0207 608 2409.
