Petitions

East Northamptonshire Petitions Scheme

The Council welcomes petitions bearing 50 or more signatures within this scheme and recognises that petitions are one way in which people can let us know their concerns. All petitions sent or presented to the Council will receive an acknowledgement from the Council within 14 days of receipt. This acknowledgement will set out what we plan to do with the petition.

Paper petitions can be sent to: Member Services Officer, East Northamptonshire Council, Cedar Drive, Thrapston NN14 4LZ. It is now possible to create, sign and submit petitions online.

Petitions can also be presented to a meeting of the Council. There are 5 meetings of the Council each year, and dates and times can be found here. If you would like to present your petition to the Council, or would like your councillor to present it on your behalf, please contact the Democratic Services Manager on 01832 742113 or e-mail memberservices@east-northamptonshire.gov.uk at least 5 working days before the meeting and he will explain the process.

Throughout this scheme, reference is made to “you” or “your” and this generally means the “petition organiser”.
