Referendums and petitions 2023

The Local Government Act 2000 requires the council to publish a notice which sets out the minimum number of signatures which would be needed to support a valid petition requiring the council to hold a referendum on whether the borough should change to a different form of governance. This applies to petitions to the council, submitted between 1 April 2023 and 31 March 2024.
