There are three Registered Historic Parks & Gardens in Charnwood which are included on the national Register complied by English Heritage. A part of the gardens of Whatton House also lie within the Borough.
While the inclusion of a park or garden on the Register provides no statutory protection in itself, it is recognised that the impact of development on a registered park or garden is a material planning consideration.
