Conservation Officer and Conservation Committee

The Trust's conservation work is undertaken by a Conservation Officer and the Conservation Committee. They can offer advice to owners and managers of designed landscapes, drawing on their knowledge and expertise as well as being able to call on others' experience. The Conservation Officer is an experienced historic landscape consultant, who has considerable knowledge of the county's historic designed landscapes and their setting. The Conservation Committee comprises members with a wealth of expertise and experience in the heritage sector, historic designed landscape research, professional horticulture and planning. The Committee monitors conservation matters in the county, supports the Conservation Officer, and makes recommendations, including on grants, to the Trust's Council of Management. The Conservation Committee would welcome comments, enquiries or suggestions to [email protected]about any of the county's historic gardens,  particularly if they are under threat in any way.
