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 on-going commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public.

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.

Data Protection

Use of individuals' personal data, including their addresses/email addresses, will be protected under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998 and will be held by the Council only for the purpose of corresponding in relation to the epetition submitted.

Your information may be shared with the petition organiser, Council officers, members of the Council or service providers.
