The Borough Council has an adopted Petition Scheme which sets out the guidelines for submitting a petition and advises of the number of signatures required for it to be discussed by the Cabinet or the Council.

Currently, the Borough Council has an active petition in respect of a Community Governance Review (CGR). A petition requesting a CGR must reach 7.5% of the electorate and once this is reached a written request has to be submitted to the Electoral Registration Officer, together with the finished petition. The petition will then be checked against the electoral register at that date to ensure that the correct number of electors has been reached and that they are registered electors from the required area. The Electoral Registration Officer will consider the request and a report will be submitted to the Borough Council’s General Purposes Committee. The CG review needs to be completed within 1 year of a valid submission.
