Petitions are one way in which you can let us know your concerns
Our petition scheme
Our petition scheme was agreed by full Council in June 2010. It was agreed in response to the duty introduced by the Local Government, Economic Development and Construction Act 2009, which requires councils to respond to petitions.
We welcome petitions. We recognise that petitions are one way in which people can let us know their concerns.
A petition requires 250 signatures to become valid and require a response from us. A petition with 2500 signatures or more will require a senior officer attending one of the our panel meetings to discuss the issue. And a petition with over 5000 signatures will trigger a debate on the petition at full Council.
For more information on the scheme please refer to our petition scheme and terms and conditions documents. You can find these at the bottom of this page.
We have received the following petitions:
- Save King's Lynn Arts Centre Petition (5,381 signatures) - received and debated at Full Council on 30 September 2010
- No public toilet facilities at Snettisham Beach (810 signatures) - received 9 September 2011 - meeting held with Parish Council to discuss options
