Nominations for the NSW Blue Plaques Program are open, and members of the public are invited to nominate local places and personalities that deserve to have their heritage value recognised.
The NSW Blue Plaques Program, modelled on a similar initiative in the United Kingdom, will showcase key heritage sites.
“I am asking everyone to think of the places in their community that have an important story attached to them and submit those suggestions to my office to be nominated for a Blue Plaque,” Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said.
“The place could be a much loved historic building, a place linked to a moment in history, or even somewhere linked to a local hero. By suggesting these sites, we can make sure the places which matter most to the communities across the electorate can be considered for recognition with a Blue Plaque.”
Minister responsible for Heritage Don Harwin said whether its places, buildings or people that have had an important impact, across NSW there are hidden gems with stories that deserve to be told.
“Behind every plaque is a story. We want everyone to be involved in making suggestions to their local MP or MLC so we can recognise the people and places in our history, including those that matter most to local communities,” Mr Harwin said.
Nominations can be sent to Wendy Tuckerman, Member for Goulburn Electorate Office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 4822 6444.
