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. Calendar of meetings.
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 862416.
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.
