An e-petition collects signatures online which allows petitions and supporting information to be made available to a much wider audience than a traditional paper-based version. Anyone who lives, works or studies in the area can submit or sign an e-petition.
E-petitions are part of our on-going commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public. Petitions which contain more than 1,000 signatures will be debated by Full Council.
