If you wish to raise an issue or concern, or have your views heard on a council matter or policy, you may want to set up a petition. You can submit your petition by post or using our online petition facility. We welcome petitions from service users and/or anyone who lives, works or studies in Surrey.
Surrey County Council's petition scheme (PDF) and the pages below provide a guide on how to set up your petition and how the council will respond to it.
Please note that there is a separate process if your petition relates to a request for new parking controls or restrictions. This would need to be considered as part of a parking review in the area, so you should send your petition to the parking team using the parking scheme request template document. You can find the template on the parking review process page, where there is also more information about parking reviews and how they work.
You can now create and sign petitions online. Using the internet to create an e-petition allows a potentially much wider audience to view your petition and gives you the opportunity to gather more names to support the petition. You may gather names and addresses in both forms - both a paper version and an online version, although repeat names should be removed by the lead petitioner.
