The Council welcomes petitions and recognises that petitions are one way in which people can let us know their concerns. All petitions sent or presented to the Council will receive an acknowledgement from the Council within 10 working days of receipt.

Petitions can be:

  • sent on paper to the Council
  • created, signed and submitted online (e-petitions), or
  • presented to a meeting of the Council.
An e-Petition is a petition which collects signatures online. This allows petitions and supporting information to be made available to a potentially much wider audience than a traditional paper based petition. Anyone who lives, works or studies in the area can submit or sign an e-petition.
