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

Please note: Due to the current (Covid-19) situation, the shortlisting panel were unable to meet. We're now looking at alternative ways to carry this out — once we've shortlisted, we'll launch a vote, so that members of the public can choose the next six to be awarded a Green Plaque.

Nominations for the sixth round of Leicestershire County Council’s Green Plaque Awards have now closed. Thank you to everyone who nominated a person or place that they felt deserved recognition.

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.
