An online system for creating and taking part in petitions is now available on Crawley Borough Council’s website.
The council’s e-petitions service enables Crawley residents or anyone who works or studies in the town to create, view and manage the progress of petitions online.
E-petitions make the information available to a much wider audience, giving local people the opportunity to gather more names to support the e-petition.
A petition may gather signatures in both forms – you can have a paper version and an online version, although repeat signatures will be removed.
Councillor Duncan Crow, Deputy Leader of Crawley Borough Council, said: “We welcome petitions which can help inform debate and potentially result in changes that can have a positive impact on local people.
“It is also a good way to highlight an issue that matters to you where the council has responsibility or influence.
“This new online system is a simple and convenient way of bringing an issue to the attention of the council for it to consider and gives residents another way of letting us know their views, whether they support or object to something the council is doing.”
