People commemorated in Green Plaques must have been deceased for at least 20 years. The full Selection Criteria is set out on our website at: www.leics.gov.uk/greenplaques
Residents can nominate either by post, online or by picking up and dropping off a nomination form at any of the county libraries.
-Nominations close on 24 January 2014.
-The nominations will be short-listed to twelve by a panel of experts.
-The public will then be invited to vote for their favourites over a six week period.
