Devon Gardens Trust is devoted to the preservation and enhancement of gardens in the UK county of Devon


County Gardens Trusts, like the DGT in Devon, seek to protect and conserve the historic designed landscape that includes gardens, parkland, cemeteries and public parks.  In the county of Devon there are 56 sites that appear in the Historic England Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England, five of which are listed as Grade 1 - of exceptional importance (for details click here).  There are over 180 parks, gardens and cemeteries in the Devon Gazetteer of Parks and Gardens of Local Historic Interest, of which 39 are of national importance and should be added to the Historic England Register at Grade II (of special interest warranting every effort to preserve them).

The sites on the Devon Gazetteer are 'heritage assets’ and are included on the List of Heritage Assets compiled by Local Planning Authorities; as such are a material consideration when considering planning applications.  Responses to planning applications affecting heritage assets made by DGT's Conservation Officer appear on this website.
