Registered Historic Parks and Gardens What is a registered park and garden?
A registered park and garden is one which appears on the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest compiled by English Heritage. Registration does not entail extra legal controls (unlike listing of buildings or designation of conservation areas), but it does mean that special consideration is given to the landscape in the planning process.
Historic parks and gardens (like listed buildings) are graded to show their relative importance:
Grade I sites are of exceptional historic interest
Grade II* sites are of great historic interest
Grade II sites are of special historic interestRegistered parks and gardens in South Bucks and register descriptions
