Petitions to the council

Appealing petition responses

If you feel that we have not dealt with your petition properly, the petition organiser has the right to request that the council's relevant overview and scrutiny committee review the steps council has taken in response to your petition.

The committee will consider your request within 30 days of receiving it. Should the committee determine we have not dealt with your petition adequately, it may use any of its powers to deal with the matter.

Once your request has been considered, the petition organiser will be informed of the results within seven days.

This scheme is subject to review by the council.
