We welcome petitions and recognise that they are one way in which you can let us know your concerns and have adopted a Petitions Scheme which sets out how we will deal these and what is required from you.

Who can Petition us?

Any Rother resident can submit a petition provided it includes 10 or more signatures. A petition may be signed by anyone living, working or studying in the Rother district.

How can I submit a Petition?

Petitions can be submitted in paper or by using an e-petitions website such as www.change.org or https://petition.parliament.uk/.

Petitions submitted to the Council must include:

  • a clear and concise statement covering the subject of the petition. It should state what action the petitioners wish the Council to take; and
  • the name and address and signature or any person supporting the petition

The full Petitions Scheme – LATEST VERSION 2017 details information about the different types of petition, how we will deal with your petition, how we will keep you informed and subjects which, for legal or other reasons, we cannot accept as petitions.
