We are working with owners of heritage-listed properties to help celebrate and raise awareness of just a small proportion of this history through the blue Heritage Plaques scheme, now in its second year.
15 blue Heritage Plaques have recently been installed, adding to the 28 installed in 2019. This year there is a mix of commercial, institutional and residential buildings located across PAE.
This round we received nearly 70 applications and we will be continuing to work through these applications in the coming years.
It has been wonderful to see how important preserving and celebrating local heritage is to the PAE community. Information on our identified heritage buildings can be found on our website.
The website includes information on the location of the current and previous year’s sites, as well as historic information, photos and links to other interesting information on each of the properties.
