Introducing the new Heritage Constraints layer for historic parks and gardens

08/11/2023

We’re delighted to announce another exciting product update to our Heritage Constraints layer: historic parks and gardens. This latest feature is an invaluable tool for residential and commercial developers who wish to honour the past while building for a successful future

The significance of historic parks and gardens: 

When considering a site for development, it's not just about the bricks and mortar; it's also about the cultural and historical significance of the land you're working with. Registered historic parks and gardens hold a special place in our heritage, and they are essential elements of our historical landscape. 

Why are these parks and gardens significant? The answer lies in the concept of "material consideration" in the planning process. Properties adjacent to or overlapping these protected areas are subject to specific elements of national planning policy. In fact, registered parks and gardens are of the same weight in policy terms under the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) as scheduled monuments and listed buildings. In NPPF terms, they are considered "designated heritage assets," with those registered at Grade I or Grade II* being identified as "of the highest significance." 

Historic Parks with location analysis

Here's where it gets even more interesting – in England, Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) must consult organisations like Historic England and The Gardens Trust, depending on the grade of registration, when dealing with developments likely to affect these registered sites. Statutory consultation requirements have been in place since 1995 and are still a vital part of the planning process. 

Historic parks and gardens in Scotland and Wales also receive similar protections, emphasising the importance of preserving our heritage. 

 

What’s the solution? 

Nimbus understands the significance of historic parks and gardens and how they can impact your property development plans. With our new Historic Parks and Gardens layer within the Heritage Constraints section of Location Analysis, we've made it easier for you to explore and understand these protected areas.  

Historic Parks

Now, when you assess a site for development, you can quickly identify whether it partly or fully overlaps with a registered historic park or garden. This critical insight will enable you to make informed decisions that respect the heritage of the land while also helping you achieve your property goals – all at the touch of a button.
