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. They 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 whether what you want is a matter for the County Council.

Details of how to submit a petition to the County Council are outlined in the Petitions Scheme document. It outlines how the County Council deals with petitions, explains the different options and includes contact details of officers who can provide advice about the submission of your petition.
