We particularly welcome petitions as one way in which you can let us know your concerns. We set out below how the District Council will respond to petitions that you send to us.

What is a petition?

We treat as a petition any communication that is signed by or sent to us on behalf of a number of people. A communication needs at least 10 signatories or petitioners before we treat it as a petition. Whilst we like to hear from people who live, work or study in the Derbyshire Dales, this is not a requirement and we would take equally seriously a petition from, for example, 10 visitors to the District on the subject of facilities at one of our Leisure Centres.
