Current ePetitions

Online petitions must follow the same guidelines as paper petitions. As the petition organiser, you'll need to provide us with your name, postal address and email address. You'll also need to decide how long the petition will be open for signatures. Most petitions run for 6 months, but a shorter or longer timeframe can be chosen, up to a maximum of 12 months.

When you create an online petition, it may take 5 working days before it's published online. This is because we have to check that the content of your petition is suitable before it's made available for signature.

If we feel we cannot publish your petition for some reason, we'll contact you to explain. A summary of the petition and the reason why it has not been accepted will be published under the 'rejected petitions' section.

When a petition has closed for signatures, it will automatically be submitted to the director of legal services.

In the same way as a paper petition, you'll receive an acknowledgement within 10 working days. If you'd like to present your petition to a meeting of the council, please contact the director of legal services within 10 working days of receipt of the acknowledgement.

A petition acknowledgement and response will be emailed to everyone who has signed the petition. The acknowledgement and response will also be published.
