Manchester City Council installed its first commemorative plaque in 1960, and since then we’ve installed over 100 of them. Plaques are an effective and visible means of celebrating Manchester's heritage and our historic environment, tangibly connecting past and present, increasing pride among local communities and giving a sense of place to residents and visitors. Plaques can also play an important conservation role, helping to highlight buildings with historic associations and support their preservation.
If you would like to submit a proposal for a new commemorative plaque, you can apply online here or request a form from:

To ensure the quality consistency and transparency of the scheme, we apply a set of criteria to all new nominations.
