Renfrewshire Council

Make a petition

Petitions allow members of the public to raise issues of concern with the council either as individuals or on behalf of an organisation. 

Councillors can't submit petitions but everyone else is free to do so. 

As long as the petitions comply with the attached procedures, they will be considered by the council's Audit, Scrutiny and Petitions Board at the first available meeting.

Petitions should be concerned with the functions of the council or issues which are of concern to some or all Renfrewshire residents. Petitions may therefore, relate to services provided by other bodies such as the police and health board. However, petitioners should recognise that the council's Audit, Scrutiny and Petitions board has limited influence over these bodies.

Petitions will be considered at specified ordinary meetings of the board and will be open to members of the press and public. 

Details of petitions which have been submitted and their outcomes are available.
