Petition scheme

On 26 May 2010, Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council adopted a new petition scheme.

The council welcomes petitions and recognises that petitions are one way in which you can let us know your concerns.  We will acknowledge all petitions sent or presented to the council within 10 working days of receipt. This acknowledgement will set out what we plan to do with the petition.

We will treat something as a petition if it has twenty or more signatories and is either identified as being a petition, or it seems to us that it is intended to be a petition. You can submit a petition in paper format which should be sent to:

Democratic Services
Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
Hinckley Hub
Rugby Road
Leics LE10 0FR

Online petitions

If you would like to create an online petition, please contact Rebecca Owen:

If your petition has received 2000 signatures or more (or for single parish issues, a proportionate number of signatures as listed on the attached schedule) it will be scheduled for a council debate.
