We have provided a document pro forma (72 KB) to assist you in drawing up your petition and a pdf brief summary (52 KB) of how the Council will respond to your petition, depending upon the number signatures.
Please read the document Petitions Scheme (53 KB) (below) for more information.
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 pdf public participation (14 KB) at those meetings. Calendar of meetings.
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, 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.
