Recognition for our Local Heritage: Nominations Open in the Northern Beaches for NSW Heritage Blue Plaque Program
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,” Mr Griffin 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 community of the Northern Beaches 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 James Griffin, Member for Manly’s office by emailing [email protected] or phone 9976 2773.
