We have been considering removing the above site from the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.

We have taken into account all the representations made, and completed our assessment of the site. Historic England has decided not to remove the site from the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.

However, as the result of this reassessment, the entry for this site has been amended. The updated version of the entry will be available on the National Heritage List for England from tomorrow. This List can be accessed through our website.

The Register in itself entails no additional statutory controls. The historic interest of a park or garden is, however, established as a material planning consideration, and the Register provides the key means by which sites of special historic interest are identified. It draws attention to the fact that the sites included should receive special consideration if changes or proposals for development are being contemplated.

Local authorities are required to consult Historic England over any planning applications they receive which may affect sites graded I or II* on the Register. They are also directed to consult The Gardens Trust on applications which may affect any site on the Register regardless of grade. Additionally, the Register is used by many local planning authorities as the basis for relevant conservation policies in statutory development plans.

Any queries about the registration of the site should be addressed to this office. If you have any enquires concerning planning related matters or would like advice on management issues, please contact our Regional Landscape Architect.

It is made clear in the Register that the parks and gardens listed are not open to the public unless they are separately advertised.
