WHGT campaigns actively against planning applications which threaten significant gardens and parks. Please contact the WHGT if you are concerned about any proposal that impacts a park, a garden site or its essential setting. The WHGT National Planning co-ordinator is Ros Laidlaw.

Planning Policy Wales (PPW)

The Welsh Assembly Government published Planning Policy Wales (PPW) in March 2002. Policies which relate to the protection of the historic environment are found in Chapter 6.

Paragraph 6.5.23 states that local planning authorities should protect parks and gardens and their settings, particularly those parks and gardens listed in the first part of the  "Register of Landscape, Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in Wales."
