Reducing the Number of Petition Signatures to aid Democracy

On Tuesday evening along with the RBWM Budget 2020-21, at the Full Council Meeting, we’ll be debating the following…

What’s your opinion? Should it be reduced? Share your thoughts…

Motion by Councillor Hill

This Council agrees to reduce the number of signatures required for a petition to be debated at Full Council from 1500 to 1000 in the interests of democracy by allowing residents to more easily get direct access to their elected representatives on issues of importance to them.

Thank you.
