Petitions should be accompanied by contact details, including the address for the petition organiser. The name, address and signature of any person supporting the petition.
Petitions can be organised or signed by anyone who lives, works, studies or does business in the Borough.
Petitions will not be accepted if they are considered to be vexatious, abusive or otherwise inappropriate. In addition, Planning and Licensing issues and any other matters which already have a right of recourse to a review or right of appeal are excluded from the Council's Petitions Scheme.
The Council will acknowledge receipt of a petition within ten working days.
The Council's response to a petition will depend on what a petition asks for and how many people have signed it. View the full details of the Councils Petitions Scheme .
