Petitions – Update

A few weeks ago I posted about Cornwall Council adopting a method of accepting petitions. Well, at Cabinet this was endorsed. The same worries raised by the Scrutiny Committee were raised again. No doubt when its presented to full Council these same points will be aired. The Government says we must do it, so we don’t have much scope on this matter. Link to previous post.

For my area that falls within the area of the Helston and Lizard Community Network (CN) you will need 325 signatures for your petition to be looked at by the CN. About 1% of the population.

For the other CN here is is the link giving you numbers for those areas  Link to page 52
