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. To see how the scheme works and how the council will respond open or download the full scheme.

Anyone who lives, works or studies in the borough can submit or sign an ePetition. EPetitions are part of the council's ongoing commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public. An ePetition 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 and can ask for a debate or call an officer to account.

To support an existing ePetition choose an ePetition and add your name, address and email address.

You may prefer to start a paper petition, this works in exactly the same way as an ePetition except that you must hand the petition into the council or submit it to a councillor.


Disclaimer: Erewash 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 ePetitioning or any comments or suggestions, please email Democratic Services at
