Petitions

What can I do if I feel my petition has not been dealt with properly?

If you feel that we have not dealt with your petition properly, you (the petition organiser) have the right to ask the most appropriate Strategic Committee reviews the steps that the we have taken in response to your petition. If the matter has already been considered by the relevant Strategic Committee, the Policy and Finance Committee will review what we have done. 

The Strategic Committee aims to consider your request at its next meeting. If this is not possible it will be considered at the next meeting.

If the Strategic Committee decides we have not dealt with your petition adequately, it may use any of its powers to deal with the matter.

Once the appeal has been considered you (the petition organiser) will be informed of the results within five working days.
