About the Scheme
The Commemorative Plaque Scheme is intended to celebrate the link between person and building, and to emphasise the social and human element of local architecture. An annual theme will be formally announced each year, and will guide members of the public to consider nominations within specific fields.
The form of a building can say a great deal about the character of the particular person who lived or worked there; it can confirm assumptions or, in other cases, come as a complete surprise, casting a new aspect on the individual concerned.
The closing date for completed submissions is 31st January 2015
. However, we would advise that any prospective nominations should be made as quickly as possible, in order that stage 1 checks can be undertaken. This will then allow the applicant sufficient time to carry out the second stage of the process, as detailed on the 'How to propose a Commemorative Plaque
There is no ‘theming’ of the Commemorative Plaque Scheme for 2014, therefore, nominations are sought for all persons whose life and achievements have made a significant difference to the Scotland and its people and who may also have gained international recognition for their impact and accomplishments.
