This page is about memorials in public spaces, including parks and green spaces. it is not about memorials in cemeteries and crematoriums.
We welcome the celebration of the individuals, events and communities that have contributed to the rich heritage of Kirklees and its towns and communities.
We support the needs and principles of memorials and plaques on and in buildings, parks and green spaces, which commemorate events, groups or individuals which have made a significant, lasting contribution to the history and culture of Kirklees and its communities.
We recognise that these facilities have many uses and are enjoyed by a wide range of people, and will seek to ensure that the issue is managed and supported for the mutual benefit of all.
