Public Petitions Scheme


The Council welcomes petitions and recognises that petitions are one way in which people can let us know their concerns.  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.

We will treat something as a petition if it is identified as being a petition, or if it seems to us that it is intended to be a petition and it meets the criteria set out in this Scheme.

Paper petitions can be sent to:

The Petitions Officer
East Cambridgeshire District Council

The Grange
Nutholt Lane
Ely, Cambs, CB7 4EE
