Do you want to support or comment on a petition online?

An e-petition allows you to support a petition by adding your name and address online. Information about the subject is also provided, to put the petition in context and help you decide whether to sign.
You can also see who else has supported the petition (name and area only).
The Council will respond to all petitions, however in order to be debated at a Full Council meeting a minimum of 3000 valid signatures will be required. . If a petition is asking for a senior Council officer to give evidence at a public meeting it could be heard at Scrutiny Management Committee or panel.

Do you want to use the Internet to petition the Council?

e-petition allows you to have your petition live on the internet, rather than just on paper. This way, your petition and supporting information can be made available to a potentially much wider audience, giving you the opportunity to gather more names to support the petition.
A petition may gather names and addresses in both forms - you can have a paper version and an online version, although repeat names should be removed by the Lead Petitioner.
