This document is part of a series of non-statutory guidance notes about managing change in the historic environment. They explain how to apply the policies in the Historic Environment Policy for Scotland.
This guidance note sets out the principles that apply to developments affecting Inventory gardens and designed landscapes, and the roles and responsibilities and organisations have to care for and protect them. It should inform planning policies and help with decisions relating to planning applications affecting Inventory sites.
We regularly review and update our policy advice and guidance. When we propose any changes, we hold public consultations to ensure your opinions can help to shape the guidance we provide. Find out more about our current consultations.
