Plaques and Memorials Policy 2022 - 2027

Council often receives requests for the installation of plaques and memorials in memory of a loved one who had a significant impact on the Wyndham community. These requests are assessed with consideration of the effect on surrounding residents where a plaque or tribute is placed.

Our new Plaques and Memorials Policy is important to guide how requests are managed, whilst ensuring a positive outcome for the Wyndham community.


Requests for plaques or memorials are required to meet the following criteria:
  • The deceased person/s had a significant connection with the Wyndham Community, is known to the Wyndham community and has lived in Wyndham for a significant period of their life. For example, the person was highly active within the community and participated in unpaid contributions to the community.

Assessment criteria are important to ensure fair and equitable consideration of all requests. A commemorative tree is an alternative available when the above criteria is not met.
