Norfolk County Council welcomes petitions.
We believe petitions inform debate and can have positive outcomes that lead to change. For example, they can demonstrate strong public approval or disapproval to something that the council is doing.
Anyone who lives, works or studies in Norfolk can submit a petition.
There are no age restrictions so children can also submit and sign petitions.
We operate an online petitions system, but we also accept paper petitions and petitions that have been created using other online petitions systems or websites.
Your petition should begin with a statement that sums up the action that you wish Norfolk County Council to take, or to cease taking. Ideally, this should begin: ‘We, the undersigned, petition Norfolk County Council to…’. After the statement, you can include any further details regarding the background to the petition that you wish.
Our petitions system is intended to provide a voice for residents of the county of Norfolk. As a Petition Organiser, you should live, work or study in Norfolk. Similarly, signatories to your petition should fulfill these criteria in order for their signatures to be considered as valid.
All petitions submitted to Norfolk County Council are subject to terms and conditions.
If you require assistance with this process, please email the Petitions Administration Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
