The Council welcomes e-Petitions which are created and submitted through our website.
Creating an e-Petition
When you create an e-Petition, it may take up to ten working days before it is published online. This will allow the Council to satisfy itself on the content and nature of the petition before it is made available for signature.
If we feel we cannot publish your petition for any reason, we will contact you within this time to explain. The reason why it has not been accepted will be published under the ‘rejected petitions’ section of the website.
When an e-Petition has closed for signature, it will automatically be submitted to the Petitions Officer. In the same way as a paper petition, you will receive an acknowledgement within 10 working days.
A petition acknowledgement and response will be emailed to everyone who has signed the e-Petition and elected to receive this information. The acknowledgement and response will also be published on the Council’s website.
