Carlisle City Council welcomes both E-Petitions and paper copy petitions and recognises that petitions are one way in which people can let us know their concerns.

For more details on how to submit a petition please see the 'Scheme for Submission of Petitions' in the downloadable documents at the bottom of the page.

A table containing details of petitions received by the Council and the actions taken can be viewed the the downloadable documents at the bottom of the screen.


An E-Petition is a petition which collects signatures online. This allows petitions to be made available to a potentially much wider audience than a traditional paper based petition. Anyone who lives, works or studies in Carlisle and who is a registered elector of the district of the Council can sign a petition.

You can submit a new petition or sign an existing petition by accessing any of the Active e-petitions that are listed.

The Council accepts no liability for the contents of petitions on these webpages. The views expressed should not be considered as those of the Council.
