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

Nominations now open for the latest round of Green Plaque Awards

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 last day to nominate is Monday 23 December 2019. Nominees will then be considered by our panel, who will narrow down to a shortlist of 12. 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.
