An e-Petition is a petition which collects signatures online. This allows petitions and supporting information to be made available to a potentially much wider audience than a traditional paper based petition.

You have the right to present a petition to the city council about issues that the City Council has responsibility for or is of major significance or general concern affecting the city.

E-Petitions are part of Canterbury City Council’s ongoing commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public.

For further information and guidance, please refer to the Council’s Petitions Scheme in the constitution.

Supporting an e-Petition

To support an existing e-Petition, choose an e-Petition and add your name, address and email address.

The Petitions Officer will moderate the request. Once accepted it will be posted on the Council website.

To find out more about the issue, see the supporting information, provided by the lead petitioner, attached to the e-Petition.

Submitting an e-Petition

An e-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.
