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 industries.
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 12 October 2012
We would advise that any prospective nominations are made now so that initial 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
The theme for 2012 is "The Year of Creative Scotland", therefore nominations are sought from those in the arts and creative fields.
