Paper based petitions

We welcome petitions and recognise that they are one way in which people can let us know about their concerns.

How can I submit a paper based petition?

In summary, paper based petitions submitted must:

  • relate to functions that are the responsibility of the council
  • contain a clear and concise statement of the subject of the petition and stating what action the petitioners wish us to take
  • have the name, address and signature of any person supporting the petition and the date it was signed
  • have at least five signatures to be considered valid

Petitions should be accompanied by contact details, including an address, for the petition organiser. This is the person we will contact to explain how we will respond to the petition.

If the petition does not identify a petition organiser, we will contact the lead signatory (ie the first named person on the petition) where contact details have been given

Paper petitions should be submitted to:

The Democracy Team
Ground floor
Town Hall
