Government cuts and less funding for English Heritage means further Blue plaques are on hold. 

There seems to be a mixed reaction about this among the Guiding fraternity, some find them to be a blot on a great building, others love them as recognition of some people and/or buildings that may not otherwise be noticed. 

However, I feel the conclusion is that if people want to commemorate someone or something generally people power takes over, monies are raised and the job done!

Also English Heritage have not ruled out the situation changing as funds become available.
