Leicestershire Green Plaque Awards Scheme

13 January 2015

Recognising and celebrating the cultural and historic heritage of Leicestershire

Nominations are open for the 2015 Leicestershire Green Plaque Award scheme.

After a successful opening year which saw five individuals and one organisation commemorated with a Green Plaque, Leicestershire County Council are again asking the local heritage community and members of the public to nominate people and places they think deserve recognition in this way.

Nominations can be for war heroes, local heroes and famous people, philanthropists and entrepreneurs, as well as places with cultural or heritage connections and buildings of historic or architectural importance.

Individuals commemorated with Green Plaques must have been deceased for at least 20 years, and both people and places must be in the county of Leicestershire, excluding Leicester City.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 23rd January 2015 and the shortlist of finalists will be announced in February 2015.

Nominations can be made online at or by picking up a form at your local library.

Details of the scheme, including events to honour the finalists from 2014,  can be found at http://www.leics.gov.uk/greenplaques.

Further information can be obtained from Karen Wilde, Heritage Development Officer,  on 0116 305 4112 or by email at karen.wilde@leics.gov.uk.
