Petitioning the Council
One of the easiest ways for you to have direct influence on the political process is to create or sign a petition.
Signing a petition
Anyone who lives, works, or studies in Eden, including under 18s, can sign or organise a petition.
Before submitting your petition you might like to check with us to see if this is a matter which we are responsible for and to see if we are already acting on the subject of your petition - to find out contact Member Services.
Submit a petition
We can only accept paper petitions.
Generally, a petition should have a clear statement covering the subject of the petition and say what actions you wish us to take and provide contact details of the petition organiser. Anyone signing a petition must provide their name, address, postcode and signature.
If you feel that we have not dealt with your petition properly, the petition organiser can request our Scrutiny Co-ordinating Board to review the steps that we took in response to your petition.
