Please note that the council has implemented a petition scheme, which sets out the procedures for submitting written and ePetitions to the council, as well as a set of flowcharts to offer greater clarity.

An ePetition is a petition which collects signatures online. This allows petitions and supporting information to be made available to a potentially much wider audience than a traditional paper based petition.

Anyone who lives, works or studies in Cheltenham can submit or sign an ePetition.

E-Petitions are part of Cheltenham Borough Council's ongoing commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public.

There are no current ePetitions

Supporting an e-Petition

To support an existing e-Petition choose an e-Petition and add your name, address and email address.

To find out more about the issue, see the supporting information, provided by the lead petitioner, attached to the e-Petition.

Submitting an e-Petition

An e-Petition can relate to any issue on which the Council has powers or duties or on which it has shared delivery responsibilities through the Local Area Agreement or other partnership arrangement.

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 submit it to a councillor. This can work well for collecting signatures in person.


Cheltenham Borough Council accepts no liability for the petitions on these web pages. The views expressed in the petitions do not necessarily reflect those of the providers.

If you have any queries about written and/or e-Petitions or any comments or suggestions, please email Democratic Services.
