One of the easiest and most popular ways of engaging in the democratic process is to sign a petition.
An e-Petition is a quick and easy way to bring issues to the attention of our councillors and influence local decision making.
If you create an e-Petition you will be required to provide the council with basic personal information so that we can contact you about your e-Petition. The information will only be used for this purpose, although we may need to pass your details to the relevant department to enable them to respond to the issues you raise.
If you sign an e-Petition on this website, you will be required to provide us with basic personal information to enable us to verify the “signatures” collected are genuine. Your name (but no other details) will be published on the e-Petition website.
We will only use the information you provide for this purpose.
For more detailed guidance, please see the Petitions Scheme at Item 5j of the Constitution
All e-petitions are automatically set up to run for 2 months, starting from a week after it has been submitted. If you require your e-petition to run for a different length of time, please specify this when submitting the e-petition.
