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.

Rejected petitions

If you feel that we have not dealt with your petition properly, the petition organiser can request our Overview and Scrutiny Committee to review the steps that we took in response to your petition.
