How do I submit a petition to the Council?
Dover District Council welcomes both paper petitions and e-petitions (submitted via this website) and recognises that petitions are one way in which people can let it know their concerns.
What is an e-Petition and how do I create or sign one?
An e-Petition is defined as a petition which collects signatures online via the Council's website.
The advantage of an e-petition that that it allows petitions to be made available to a potentially much wider audience than a traditional paper based petition. An e-Petition, like a traditional paper petition, can relate to any issue on which the Council has powers or duties or on which it has shared delivery responsibilities through the Local Area Agreement or other partnership arrangement.
Any person who lives, works or studies in the Dover District Council area, including those less than 18 years of age, can organise a petition or be a signatory.
The Council's Petition Scheme set's out the full conditions under which the Council will accept a petition.
