What is a petition?

A petition is a formal request for the council to consider a particular matter or to take a specified course of action. A petition must relate to something that the council does or for which it has a responsibility.

We welcome petitions and recognise that this is one way in which local people can raise concerns.

We have a Petitions Scheme which aims to ensure that all written and electronic petitions are dealt with in a consistent and coherent way, as outlined in our Constitution.

Please read our Petitions Questions and Answers document if you wish to find out more about the Scheme.

Who can submit and sign a petition?

Anyone who lives, works or studies in Huntingdonshire can submit a petition or sign one.
Petitions accepted by the council must meet the requirements specified within the Petitions Scheme.
