The plaque, a replacement for one which went missing earlier this year during renovations, was originally put up in 2001, two years after Springfield passed away at the age of 59.
Heritage Foundation chairman David Graham tells Spinner, "We were very, very happy to replace it. That voice, she was one of the all-time greats."
On hand to unveil the new plaque at a ceremony on Sunday, May 8, at 38-40 Aubrey Walk, Kensington was the foundation's president Robin Gibb, who was keen to reiterate what made Springfield such an important figure on both sides of the Atlantic.
Gibb said, via BBC News, "She is probably the greatest female popular singer in the modern pop-rock era -- since 1963, there's been no one to match her. This includes the United States as well -- they can't come close to her. Today they just pose at singing. She was the genuine article."
"I don't think there will ever be anyone that could take the place of Dusty Springfield," he concluded.
