Submit a petition to Council

You can submit a petition to Council to show support for a particular issue. Petitions will be tabled and received at the next appropriate Council meeting.

We will notify the lead petitioner of the date the petition will be tabled. At the Council meeting the petition will be acknowledged and referred to the relevant Director for action. As there will be no discussion on the matter at this time, supporters are not required to attend. 

To be tabled at Council the petition should:

  • Be supplied to Council at least 11 days before a Council meeting. A late petition will be accepted up until 5pm the day before
  • Clearly state the issue to be raised on each page, along with the original signatures and contact details of each petitioner
  • Include the original signatures of at least seven different individuals who live, work, study or do business in Yarra Ranges
  • Should not relate to matters already considered by Council or matters relating to operational issues.
