Petitions

An e-Petition 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.

You have the right to present a petition to Selby District Council about issues that the we have responsibility for or that is of a major significance or general concern affecting the Selby district.

E-Petitions are part of Selby District Council's ongoing commitment to 'Strengthening the voice of our communities by providing strong processes for community engagement and empowerment.'

To add your support to a petition, or even create one of your own, please view HM Government e-petiton website.
