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 and the most recent plaque unveiled was at the Rothley Court Hotel, in honour of Lord Macaulay, on October 25, 2019.

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

The nomination process is now open for plaques to be considered for commissioning in 2020.

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 or call 01509 634541.
