Home > Your council > Petitions


We welcome petitions and recognise that they are an important way for people to let us know about their concerns.

In order for a petition to be accepted, it should be about a service that the council provides or about a decision that the council is intending to take. The petition should clearly and concisely state what the subject of the petition is, along with the name, address and postcode of the lead petitioner and the signatories.

You will need to submit your petition to the relevant Council.
