Petitions Scheme

The council welcomes petitions and recognises that petitions are one way in which people can let us know their concerns. Anyone who lives, works or studies in the area can submit or sign a petition. All petitions sent or presented to the council will receive an acknowledgement from the council within 10 working days of receipt.

Paper petitions can be sent to:

The Petitions Officer
Democratic Services
Lancashire County Council
PO Box 100
County Hall

If you want to hand in your petition in person, please contact the Petitions Officer to arrange this by emailing

A petition is just one of many ways you can tell us your views. Depending on the circumstances it may be better for you to raise the issue through a different route, perhaps via your county councillor or our comments, complaints and compliments process.
