What information to include

The more detail you give at this stage, the quicker we can assess your application. We do not accept anonymous applications.

You should include with your application (either on or with the form):

  • details of the site’s location and ownership
  • current photos of the site
  • supporting information about why the site should be included in the Inventory (or removed from it)

Let us know on the form if there are reasons why we should prioritise your proposal. Include details of any development proposals for the garden or designed landscape.

We are unlikely to process:

  • incomplete forms
  • requests not made on our application form
  • requests that don’t include current photos
