The council recognises that petitions are a useful way in which people can let us know their concerns.

A petition can be presented to Full Council or another meeting of the council by a member of the council or anyone who lives in the borough, is on the register of electors or has business or employment interests in the borough. You can either submit a paper petition or create an e-petition on-line but please read the Erewash Borough Council Petition Scheme before you start to ensure that your petition is valid. Please note that the council will only accept petitions which are relevant to a matter for which it has responsibilities, powers or duties.

If you need help or advice please contact the Democratic Services Team if you have any queries prior to starting your petition by email on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.or telephoning 0115 9071116.
