Anyone who lives, works or studies in the City of Westminster can organise and sign a petition. This includes the under 18s.

We welcome petitions and realise they are a great way for people to let us know their concerns.

Petitions should be about a service the council provides (either by itself or with a partner organisation).

The easiest way to create a petition is online. 

You can also submit a paper petition, or a councillor can present your petition at an ordinary council meeting. Ordinary council meetings take place at least four times a year.

All petitions sent or presented to the council will receive an acknowledgement within 10 working days of receipt. This acknowledgement will set out what we plan to do with the petition.
