1099.     Non-statutory register of gardens etc in Wales.

A non-statutory register of landscapes, parks and gardens of special historic interest in Wales has been prepared by Cadw1. The register includes parks and gardens which are considered to be of national importance and has been compiled in order to aid the informed conservation of historic parks and gardens by owners, local planning authorities, developers, statutory bodies and all concerned with them2.

Planning policy issued by the Welsh Government indicates that local planning authorities are to take the register into account in preparing their development policies3
