Do you want to support a petition online?

ePetitioner allows you to support a petition by adding your name and address online. Information about the subject is also provided to put the petition in context and help you decide whether to sign.

You can also see who else has supported the petition (name and area only).

Do you want to use the Internet to petition the Council?

ePetitioner allows you to have your petition live on the Internet, rather than just on paper. This way, your petition and supporting information can be made available to a potentially much wider audience, giving you the opportunity to gather more names to support the petition.

A petition may gather names and addresses in both forms - you can have a paper version and an online version, although repeat names should be removed by the Principal Petitioner.

Guidance on how petitions are handled is set out in the Council's Petition Scheme.

European Petitions

As part of a European pilot we are trialing a process which allows Kingston citizens to raise online petitions for consideration directly by the European Parliament. These europetitions can be viewed and signed by citizens in other member states. The European Parliament will consider petitions which concern your rights as a European citizen, environmental matters, consumer protection, free movement of persons goods and services, employment issues, social policy, recognition of qualifications and other problems in relation to the implementation of EU law.
