How to start a petition
The petitions committee considers petitions raised by local residents or organisations, which relate to either:
- council services or activities, or
- the general wellbeing of the East Lothian community
The committee usually meets four times a year, and is chaired by the Provost.
If you are planning to start a petition you are encouraged to use the online e-petitions. However, a full paper based petition service is also available.
