Requirement of planning authorities to consult the Society

Posted on March 18th, 2011 by Chris Evans

The requirement to consult the Society on planning applications affecting Registered Parks and Gardens commenced with the Town and Country Planning (Consultation with the Garden History Society) Direction 1995. I am unclear whether this is still in force or has been superseded by other legislation. The T & C P (Development Management) Order 2010 restates the need to consult English Heritage regarding applications affecting Grade I and II* Parks and Gardens but says nothing about consulting the Society. Any comments on this would be welcome.
