Devon County Council welcomes petitions and recognises they are one way in which people can let it know of their concerns. This scheme builds on the provisions of the Council’s Constitution which, since 2002, has provided the opportunity for the public to submit petitions to the Council or its Cabinet (Article 3).

All petitions sent or presented to the Council will receive an acknowledgement within 15 working days of receipt indicating how it is planned to deal with the petition and when a response will be forthcoming.

Petitions may be sent, either on paper or via email, to:

Democratic Services and Scrutiny Secretariat, County Solicitor’ Office, County Hall, Topsham Road, Exeter, EX2 4QD or

Petitions may also be submitted online (e-petition) through the Council’s website at Devon County Council ePetitions.
