The Royal Pavilion Gardens, Brighton - Brighton and Hove, City of (UA)

John Nash designed a picturesque layout of serpentine walks and drives, flowery shrubberies and trees within open lawns of the royal estate. After a landscape restoration in 1990 the garden's condition visibly suffers from high levels of visitor use and recreational development pressure. Later insertions and temporary events contradict the character of the place with little chance to understand the history, fabric, character and cohesion of its cultural and natural heritage qualities. Brighton City Council have commissioned a Conservation Management Plan to define and manage significance.
