Petitions are one way in which people can let us know their
E-petitions and supporting information can be made available to
a potentially much wider audience than traditional paper-based
You can create
and search for ‘e-petitions’ and collect ‘signatures’ online or
search for existing e-petitions.
You may also like to start a paper petition. This works in
exactly the same way as an e-petition except that you must hand the
petition into the Council or pass it to your County Councillor or
Elected Member to submit it on your behalf.
You may wish to use our
printable petition template for your paper
Paper petitions should be submitted to:
Head of Democratic Services and Local Leadership
Kent County Council
Room 1.102 Sessions House
Kent, ME14 1XQ
or passed to your county councillor/elected Member.
