What to include in a petition

  • a brief title
  • a short statement covering the subject matter of the petition and stating what action you wish the council to take
  • the contact details of the petition organisers, including an address, so the council can respond to the petition once it has been formally submitted (the contact details will not be displayed on the website).
  • the name and address of the everyone who has signed the petition
  • the address of either place of study or work (if home address is not in Westminster)

Petitions which are considered to be vexatious, abusive or otherwise inappropriate will not be accepted. If a petition does not follow the guidelines set out above, the council may decide not to do anything further with it. In that case, we will write to you to explain the reasons.
