How do I 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

You can either submit a paper petition or use our new ePetition scheme.

Guidance on how to submit a petition or an epetition and how the Council will deal with it is contained in the petition scheme in the Council’s constitution.

You can submit a paper petition to:

Democratic Services and Scrutiny Manager

Thanet District Council

PO Box 9

Cecil Street


If you would like to talk to someone about submitting a petition, please call the Democratic Services team on 01843 577500.


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

Signing an ePetition

To support an existing ePetition simply choose an ePetition and if you already subscribe to our updates feature which allows you to receive e-mails on council committees, enter your user name and password. If not, register with us by providing your name, and e-mail address.

Current ePetitions


The Council accepts no liability for the contents on these webpages. The views expressed in the petitions do not necessarily reflect those of Thanet District Council.

Signatories to ePetitions will have their full names published in the ePetition they have signed.
