Historic parks and gardens
Parks and gardens that are of special historic interest are included in a Register of Historic Parks and Gardens maintained by Historic England who decide what is included in it. Four sites in Rushcliffe are included in the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. These are:
- the grounds of Flintham Hall
- the grounds of Holme Pierrepont Hall
- the grounds of Kingston Hall
- the grounds of Stanford Hall
Please note that these are not public parks, although Holme Pierrepont Hall is open to the public at various times during the year. There is a public footpath across Flintham Park.
Inclusion in the Register is a material consideration in deciding planning applications. This means that if a development proposal would have an impact on a registered park or garden, The Council must take that impact into account when assessing the proposal.
