Petitions

A petition can be created by any person who lives, works or studies in Peterborough. You can submit a new petition, or browse and sign existing ePetitions, through our ePetitions system. It is also possible to submit a paper petition, either by sending it to the council using the contact details below, or submitting it to one of the council meetings. 

You can only sign a petition once, the list of signatories will be checked and any duplicate or obviously frivolous responses will be removed.

ePetitions

To submit an ePetition you will need to register, registration is a simple process that just requires you to provide us with a few details in case we need to contact you about the ePetition.

To sign an ePetition you will need to provide a few basic details, including a valid email and postal address, to enable us to verify the ‘signatures’ collected are genuine.

Promoting your ePetition

Whilst we will host ePetitions on our website, we will not generally promote individual ePetitions. It is down to the lead petitioner to spread the word about their ePetition in order to get as many people as possible to sign up.  

Submitting an ePetition

When an ePetition reaches its closing date it will no longer be available to sign online. The list of signatories will be collated by Democratic Services and the lead petitioner will be contacted regarding the submission of the completed ePetition.

Once the ePetition has been submitted it will be referred to an appropriate council officer for consideration and will be dealt with in accordance with our Petitions Scheme.
