Current ePetitions

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.

E-Petitions are part of the Council’s ongoing commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public.

Select an earlier date range below to find completed e-Petitions and responses from the Council.

What happens next?

Your email to confirm your petition is live on the website contained a link that you can share with people to gain support for your petition.

In order for the Council to take further action, the petition requires a minimum of 25 signatories before the end of the deadline set for your petition. If the petition reaches this limit, it will automatically be referred to the relevant scrutiny committee, along with the petitioners details, for them to consider the next reasonable steps to take in relation to the petition.

If the petition does not reach 25 signatories then the petition will be closed and no further action taken.


This Council accepts no liability for the petitions on these web pages. The views expressed in the petitions do not necessarily reflect those of the providers.
