Current ePetitions

The council welcomes petitions and recognises that petitions are one way in which people can let us know their concerns.


An E-Petition is a petition which is set up and maintained on KCC's website and 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 Kent County Council's area can submit or sign an e-Petition.

If you sign an e-Petition on this website, you will be required to provide us with basic personal information to enable us to verify the “signatures” collected are genuine. Your name (but no other details) will be published on the e-Petition website.

We will only use the information you provide for this purpose.

Paper Petition

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 pass it to your Elected Member to submit it on your behalf. You may wish to use our printable petition template for your paper petition.

Paper petitions should be submitted to:- Democratic Services, Kent County Council, Room 1.99 Sessions House, County Hall, Maidstone, Kent, ME14 1XQ or passed to your Elected Member.
