Petitions

Did you know you can petition the council?

You can petition the council about issues of concern to you.

However, we cannot accept petitions about planning or licensing applications or on matters where there is already an existing right of appeal, such as council tax banding and non-domestic rates. 

How to petition us

Any petition must include at least the following information:

  • a clear and concise definition of the petition subject and the action the petitioners would like the council to take
  • the name, address and signature of at least 10 or more people that support the petition and live, work or study in North Lincolnshire
  • the contact details including an address for the petition organiser

Full details can be found in our Council constitution

Note: Please read the Constitution's rules on petitions stated in D.1.35 before starting your petition as it or its wording may not comply, and therefore may not be accepted.

You can petition the council by paper, or by using an online petition service such as www.change.org

If you use both a paper and an online service for your petition then the totals should be aggregated.

Petitions should be submitted by email to petitions@northlincs.gov.uk, or by post.

It is possible to find petitions that are open using online search engines.
