Current ePetitions

The Council welcomes contact from the public and is committed to listening to concerns raised and dealing with them promptly and effectively. Before considering whether to raise a petition to the Council you may want to discuss your issue with your local county councillor. Your local county councillor will be able to advise you whether the matter is one for the Council and also whether a petition is the best form of engagement with the Council on the matter you wish to raise.

The Council's petitions scheme can be viewed here Petitions Scheme. This scheme applies to both paper and e-petitions.

Submitting an e-petition

An e-petition is a petition which collects signatures online. All petitions submitted to the Council must relate to a matter over which the County Council has control or for which it is responsible. Anyone who lives or works in Hertfordshire can submit or sign an e-petition on the Council's website.

Supporting an e-Petition

To support an existing e-petition choose an e-petition and add your name, address and email address. To find out more about the issue see the supporting information provided by the lead petitioner attached to thee-petition. For any petitions closed before 31 July 2018 you will need to consult our archive

Hertfordshire County Council is the data controller for personal information submitted for e-petitions and is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office. Your data will be used to verify the number of qualifying signatories to the petition you have started and/or signed. Information provided to the Council will be held securely from the date you start or sign a petition until one year after that petition closes. Data may need to be shared in order to prevent or detect crime, to protect public funds or if any other legislation requires it. If you are the petition organiser, or are treated as such at any time for the purposes of the Council’s petitions scheme, your data may be shared with third parties in order to resolve the matter where they are the relevant contracted services providers of the Council. You have the right to access your data and to have any factual errors corrected. Rights to erase, restrict, object or move your data may also apply in certain circumstances. If you would like to request a copy of your data held in the e-petition system, please email Democratic Services in the first instance at Information on your rights and how to access your information can be found at


This Council accepts no liability for the petitions on these web pages. The views expressed in each petition are those of the lead petitioner and do not necessarily reflect those of the County Council.
