Any questions not answered on the website, please email:

Petitions submitted to the Council must include:

(i) a clear and concise statement covering the subject of the petition. It should state what action the petitioners wish to take;

(ii) the name, address and signature of any person supporting the petition; and

(iii) contact details, including address, of the petition organiser. This is the person we will contact to explain how we will respond to the petition (any contact details will not be displayed online).

All petitions will recieve an acknowledgement from the Council within 10 working days of receipt, which will set out what we plan to do. In the period immediately before an election or referendum we may need to deal with your petition differently - if this is the case we will explain the reasons and discuss the revised timetable which will apply.
