Green Plaque Awards Scheme

The Leicestershire County Council Green Plaques are awarded to people and places in and around the county, nominated and voted for by you.

You can nominate anyone from war heroes, local heroes, philanthropists and entrepreneurs, places with cultural or heritage connections, as well as buildings of historic or architectural importance. 

The nominees will be considered by our panel, who then narrow down to a shortlist of twelve. The public then vote for their favourites and the six with the most votes will be honoured at our ‘plaque unveiling’ events throughout the year.

The selection criteria give details of how we will evaluate nominations.Opens new windo
