Petition the council

How to petition the council

Signing a petition is one way for residents to express their concerns and priorities to their local authority.  The council has recently redesigned its petition scheme to make it easier for people to submit petitions

Submitting a Petition

Guidance on how to submit a petition or an e-petition and how the Council will deal with it is contained in the petition scheme in the Council’s constitution. Before entering your petition you may want to check that the issue that you want to create a petition on is not the subject of a Council consultation

You can submit a paper petition to:

Committee Services Manager

Thanet District Council
PO Box 9
Cecil Street

Epetitions an be created using either: 38Degrees or change.org

These can then be sent to the Council, either using the address above or by emailing it to committee@thanet.gov.uk
