Petitions scheme

We want everyone who lives, works or studies in West Sussex to be able to petition the County Council. If we can, we will do what your petition requests. If we cannot, we will explain why.

Before considering whether or not to raise a petition to the County Council you may want to discuss your issue with your local county councillor (member) who may be able to help you with it or explain how to make representations on a particular subject to the right person at the County Council and explain whether what you want is a matter for the County Council.

If you want to submit a petition to the County Council please look at the Petitions scheme under Supporting documents, and then register your petition on the ePetitioner pages, even if you have already started a paper petition. This will enable us to respond more quickly to your petition and, if you wish, you can also collect signatures on-line. 

If you haven’t started a petition the ePetitioner is a quick way of setting up a petition, and if you want to print off paper copies it provides a template for you. You can then add the number of signatures you get on paper to the online total. When your petition has closed, we will post a copy of our response on these pages. You can also read the County Council’s response to other petitions that have recently closed. The list of paper petitions (see supporting documents) gives details of their status and will be updated in due course to provide a summary of the final outcome.

Our Petitions scheme sets out how the County Council will deal with petitions and explains the different options. It also includes contact details of officers who can provide advice about the submission of your petition to the County Council.
