We have provided a pro forma to assist you in
drawing up your petition and a brief summary of how
the Council will respond to your petition, depending upon the
number signatures. Please read the Petitions
Scheme (below) for more information.
The Council recognises the importance of
e-petitions which can be created and submitted through our website
and where other people can then add their support.
e-Petitions must follow the
same guidelines as those for paper petitions.
View, sign or submit an e-Petition.
Malvern Hills District Council recognises that petitions are an
important way in which people can raise their concerns.
Petitions can also be presented to a meeting of the Executive
Committee, Planning Committee (but not Development Control
Committees) or Council as part of the public
participation at those meetings. Dates can be found by
If you would like to present your petition to the meeting, or
would like your Councillor or someone else to present it on your
behalf, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 01684 862151 preferably 5 working days before the
meeting and we will talk you through the process.
Your petition will not be debated at that
meeting but will be passed to the appropriate officer or Councillor
for a response to you. The response to your petition will depend on
the number of signatures
as detailed below, however if your petition has received 750
signatures or more it will be scheduled for a Council debate and if
this is the case we will let you know whether this will happen at
the next meeting or a later meeting of the Council.
