Petitions Scheme

Stockton-on-Tees Town Hall

There are a number of disruptions to Council services because of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please check the link below before accessing any of our services.

For details of disruptions and for advice and guidance visit www.stockton.gov.uk/coronavirus

If you're concerned about something the council is responsible for, or that the council can influence, you can submit a petition to the council.

Petitions allow you to raise concerns that are important to you and have a direct influence on the political process.

Guidelines for submitting a petition

We consider petitions with a minimum of 10 signatures that are about an issue that the Council has a responsibility for. If a petition has 1000 signatures or more, it will be considered for referral to a full Council meeting for a full and proper debate.

Petitions can be submitted in a paper copy format or electronically. We will send an acknowledgement of receipt of the petition within 10 working days of receipt. We will also advise how long we think we will need to consider the issue.

A petition should 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 18s, who either live, work or study in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees.


Paper petitions can be sent to:

Assistant Director of Administration, Democratic & Electoral Services
Stockton on Tees Borough Council
Municipal Buildings
Church Road
Stockton-on-Tees
TS18 1LD
