The Council welcomes petitions and recognises that petitions are one way in
which people can let us know their concerns.
Any petition containing a minimum of 50 signatures relating to a matter upon which the authority has responsibility, or relates to a proposed improvement in the economic, social or environmental well-being of the authority's area including those delivered by partner authorities (see details below) may be presented in either hard copy format or electronically to the Council will receive an acknowledgement from the Council within 10 working days of receipt. We will also include within our response details of the timescale for the matter to be determined/considered further by the Council.
We will treat something as a petition if it is identified as being a petition, or if it seems to us that it is intended to be a petition. A petition should however contain a clear statement of the persons concerns and what the person wants the authority to do; together with the name, address and signature of any person supporting the petition.
Petitions will be accepted from members of the public, including under 18's, who either live, work or study in the Borough of Stockton on Tees.
Details of how the Council will consider and respond to petitions is contained within the Council's Petition Scheme (below).
