Runnymede Borough Council welcomes petitions from anyone who lives, works or studies in Runnymede. Petitions are one way that people can let us know their concerns.

Petitions inform debate and can have positive outcomes that lead to change. For example, they can bring an issue to our attention for us to consider or they can demonstrate strong public approval or disapproval to something that we are doing or proposing to do. How we deal with petitions is set out in our Constitution.

mySociety builds websites which give people simple, tangible benefits in the civic and community aspects of their lives. It is strictly politically neutral and is run by a registered charity, UKCOD (no.1076346). mySociety's role was in designing and building the petition software to be as easy to use, as transparent and as trustworthy as possible.
If you want to sign a petition you will be asked to click on a link to verify your email address so that your name can be added to the list of signers. If your name does not appear on the list of signers on our website it means that you have not clicked on that link. Please contact us if you need assistance.
