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.

Paper petitions may also be submitted. These will be linked to an ePetition which will also be displayed on this part of the website.

More information on the Council’s petitions scheme can be found here.

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.
