Nominations are now open for the Commemorative Plaque scheme run by Historic Environment Scotland. The Commemorative Plaques are placed usually on a building which has some connection with a person of note who lived or worked there at some time.
“Plaques are a great way of highlighting the important link between people and places, making the connection between individuals and the built environment that shaped their life and work.
“As well as a way of celebrating Scotland’s luminaries, the plaque scheme is an important opportunity to shine a light on those lesser-known figures from Scotland’s history and bring their stories to national consciousness.” Neil Gregory, Deputy Head of Engagement at HES
The person nominated:
- must have been dead for at least 20 years
- must have been born more than 100 years ago
- should be significantly associated with a surviving building
Historic Environment Scotland are particularly keen this year to have nominations from minority communities.
Nominations close on 30th of August 2019.
