Broadland Blue Plaque Scheme - commemorating local people

A blue plaque is a permanent sign installed in a public place in the United Kingdom to commemorate a link between a particular location and a notable person. In Broadland we are installing them to serve as permanent, visible milestones in our history.  The signs will remind us of what has been achieved by people born here or who chose to make our district their home.

Since our scheme was launched in January this year, three blue plaques have been installed in Old Catton, Buxton and Aylsham to celebrate the lives and achievements of five important people.

We rely on public nominations to provide us with details of who to recognise. We are currently accepting nominations for people from all walks of life who made an important contribution to our district historically.

Our consideration of nominations is led by a panel made up of the 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.

Let us know who you think should be considered for a blue plaque:
