Charnwood heritage plaques

As a result of the Bank Holiday on Monday August 26, there will be some changes to services and facility opening hours. Please visit the Bank Holiday opening arrangements webpage for full details.

The Borough Council operates a scheme to install commemorative plaques to mark people, places and events which have a connection to the history and culture of our borough.

We are aiming to commission up to three plaques a year. Proposed plaques for 2019 are in the process of being researched and an announcement will be made shortly.

We want communities and organisations in the borough to nominate people, places or events to consider for the scheme. You can do this by downloading the form below (there is a word or PDF version) and returning it to neighbourhoods.communities@charnwood.gov.uk.

The nomination timetable for 2020 plaques will be confirmed in May 2019.

There will be some criteria to consider when deciding which nominations will be awarded with a plaque. Your suggestions will be assessed by our panel of experts against the criteria so make sure you put as much detail as you can into your nomination.

 When making a nomination, we’d like you to obtain the support of:

  • a community group
  • parish or borough councillor
  • history or heritage society
  • or a parish council or similar organisation

This is so that a nomination has the support of more than one individual.

If you have any questions about the scheme or to find out more information please contact us at neighbourhoods.communities@charnwood.gov.uk or call 01509 634541
