Active and Completed ePetitions

The county council has now implemented a new Petitions Scheme, which sets out the procedures for submitting written and e-Petitions to the county council.

An e-Petition is a petition which collects signatures online. This allows petitions and supporting information to be made available to a potentially much wider audience than a traditional paper based petition.

Anyone who lives, works or studies in the area can submit or sign an e-Petition.

E-Petitions are part of the county council’s ongoing commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public.

Select an earlier date range below to find completed e-Petitions and responses from the Council.

Supporting an e-Petition

To support an existing e-Petition choose an e-Petition and add your name, address and email address. Please note that if you sign up to a petition your full name will be published on the website. Your contact details will not be published.

To find out more about the issue, see the supporting information, provided by the lead petitioner, attached to the e-Petition.

Submitting an e-Petition

An e-Petition can relate to any issue on which the county council is responsible for, either on its own or in partnership with another organisation.

Paper petitions

You can setup an e-Petition and a paper petition to run alongside each other. You must make sure that people do not sign both. You should tell us when you setup your e-Petition if you also intend to have a paper petition, and the paper petitions should be submitted on the same date as your e-Petition finishes.


This council accepts no liability for the petitions on these web pages. The views expressed in the petitions do not necessarily reflect those of the providers.
