One of the easiest and most popular ways of engaging in the democratic process is to sign a petition. A petition or an e-Petition is a quick and easy way to bring issues to the attention of our councillors and influence local decision making.
To present a petition to the Council please contact the Council's Democratic Services department on 01303 853310 /853265 or email email@example.com at least 15 working days before the meeting to discuss the process.
You can send us a paper petition and/or set up an e-petition. Paper petitions should be sent to Chief Executive, Shepway District Council, Civic Centre, Castle Hill Avenue, Folkestone, Kent, CT20 2QY at least 10 days before the meeting at which you would like the petition to be presented.
If you create an e-Petition you will be required to provide the Council with basic personal information so that we can contact you about your e-Petition. The information will only be used for this purpose, although we may need to pass your details to the relevant department to enable them to respond to you about the issues you have raised.
If you sign an e-Petition on our website, you will be required to provide us with basic personal information to enable us to verify the signatures collected are genuine. Your name (but no other details) will be published on the e-Petition website. We will only use the information you provide for this purpose.
