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.

The District Council welcomes e-petitions that are created and submitted through from this page.

E-petitions must follow the same guidelines as paper petitions and combinations of the two are allowed.

If you are a petition organiser you will need to be registered as a user and click on the submit a new e-Petion link.

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.

On this page you can also view and sign any current e-petions.

Supporting an e-Petition

To support an existing e-Petition choose an e-Petition and add your name, address and email address.

To find out more about the issue, see the supporting information, provided by the lead petitioner, attached to the e-Petition.

Submitting an e-Petition

An e-Petition can relate to any issue on which the Council has powers or duties or on which it has shared delivery responsibilities through the Local Area Agreement or other partnership arrangement.

If we feel we cannot publish your petition for some reason, we will contact you within this time to explain. You will be able to change and resubmit your petition if you wish.

When an e-petition has closed for signature, it will be dealt with as described in the 'Dealing with your petition' webpage and you will be kept fully informed of its progress. In the same way as a paper petition, you will receive an acknowledgement when your e-petition closes.

If you require further information please contact the Petition Officer.


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.
