You can apply for a new plaque on seats in Council parks or gardens. Plaques honour people who have made significant contributions to our Boroondara community. See below for how we define a ‘significant contribution’. If we approve your application, you need to pay for the plaque, park furniture and installation.

We will consider your application if:

  • it honours a person who has died and made a significant contribution to Boroondara for more than 20 years
  • it's in line with our master plan or strategic development framework for the proposed site
  • it honours a person, event or occasion that doesn't already have a plaque or marker.

A significant contribution:

  • has had a major impact on the local community
  • is more than someone doing their job, volunteering or offering charitable support
  • must stand out when compared to others.

We will also consider the number of existing plaques, memorials, public artworks and fountains before approving your application.
