NUNEATON and Bedworth residents finally have a new way to petition – and that is online.
Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Borough Council’s former ban on e-petitions has finally been lifted.
Lifting the ban on petitions was one of the aims of the local Conservatives when they were put in to power last year, as they took control of the Council.
The Hinckley Free Press were made aware of the ban being lifted today (Thursday, 16 June), from a Borough Council representative and spokesperson directly.
The Borough Council spokesperson explained: “E-petitions can be submitted by anyone – including under-18s – who lives, works or studies in the Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council area.
“Once you have submitted your petition, it will be reviewed by our team and you will receive a response within 10 days.
“If we accept your petition, we will set a start and end date to enable you to start sharing a live link. If we have declined your petition, we will advise you of this and provide reasons as to why it has been declined.”
The process of creating e-petitions has been made ‘as easy as possible’ with the use of an online form.
Details highlighting how to make a petition for submission, and further information can be found on the Council website.
