Submit a petition to the County Council

Advice on how to petition the County Council.

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

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

Online petitions (e-petitions)

Once you have read the Petitions Scheme document you can create your e-petition.
