Current ePetitions

An e-Petition is a petition which collects signatures online. This allows petitions and supporting information to be made available to a potentially much wider audience than a traditional paper based petition.

Anyone who lives, works or studies in Cumbria can submit or sign an e-Petition.

E-Petitions are part of the Council’s ongoing commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public. Please note that the views expressed in any e-Petition hosted on the Council's web site are not necessarily those of Cumbria County Council.

Select an earlier date range below to find completed e-Petitions and responses from the Council.

To find out more about the issue, see the supporting information, provided by the lead petitioner, attached to the e-Petition.

Submitting an e-Petition

An e-Petition can relate to:

  • any issue on which the Council has powers or duties
  • issues which affect the county or communities in Cumbria (so long as the Council is in a position to exercise some degree of influence)
  • anything relating to an improvement in the well being of the County to which any of the Council's partners can contribute.


This Council accepts no liability for the petitions on these web pages. The views expressed in the petitions do not necessarily reflect those of the providers.
