We will use this information to assess your application, and to erect and maintain the plaque. We may use your contact details to get in touch with you about your application by mail, telephone and email. We may also need to get in touch if a reappraisal of the plaque is carried out.
Who we share your information with
If your application is successful, your organisation’s name will be publicly available on our website as the sponsor of the plaque. Your name or your organisation’s name will also be included in the report to the City Growth and Resources Committee, which is publicly available on the Council’s website.
How long we keep your information for
Applications for commemorative plaques are kept for 2 years. If your application is successful, we will keep your organisation’s name as the sponsor in perpetuity.
The additional information submitted in support of an application for a commemorative plaque will be retained permanently in order to contribute to building the memory of the people and place of Aberdeen for future generations. This will not include your personal information.
