The council welcomes petitions and recognises that this is one way in which people can let us know their concerns.
We will respond to all petitions, setting out what we plan to do with the petition.
Petition organisers have an opportunity to present their petition to a council meeting and speak for up to three minutes on the petition.
Petitions with 1,750 signatures can be referred to the relevant Overview and Scrutiny Committee, where a chief officer could be called to give evidence.
Those petitions with 3,500 signatures could trigger a debate at Full Council.
This website provides an e-petition system, which allows petitions to be submitted to the council electronically.
