Broadland Blue Plaque Scheme

The initiative launched in January 2019 to commemorate notable local people from Broadland’s past who made valuable contributions to their community. So far, three Blue Plaques have been installed in Old Catton, Buxton and Aylsham to celebrate five people - read about the lives and achievements of the first five people to be commemorated.

A Blue Plaque is a recognised symbol of our national heritage and, in Broadland, we are installing them to serve as permanent, visible milestones in our history to remind us of what has been achieved by local people, whether those people were born here or chose to make this district their home.

We are currently looking to celebrate people from all walks of life who made an important contribution to our district historically and are accepting nominations for people you think should be considered for a Blue Plaque.

The deadline for submitting nominations for the current round of Blue Plaque awards is 31 August, 2019. Please call 01603 430496 or email if you have any questions.

We rely on public nominations to provide us with individuals of merit to commemorate. Our consideration of nominations is led by a panel made up of Broadland District Council's Chairman, Heritage Champion and Economic Development Portfolio Holder.

With the help of information provided by the council’s Economic Development and Conservation teams, the panel work to a set of criteria to select the highest standard applications.
