Current ePetitions

Welcome to our online petition system. Here you can add your name to an existing petition or you can create a new one.

Taking part in or creating a petition is one way individuals, community groups and organisations can get involved in what the council does. It allows people to raise issues of public concern, giving councillors the opportunity to consider the need for change.

Anyone who lives, works or studies in Bristol can sign or create a petition. There is no age limit children and young people can also take part in or create a petition.
