It's never been easier to contact us and make your voice heard or have your say on a local issue.
We have set up our very own petitions scheme (82kb) and guidance (48kb). Under these rules the number of signatures required to trigger a petition is just under 1% of the population of Bolsover District (74,300 based upon 2008 mid-term estimates) - that means you only need 700 signatures. Further details are available on the Notice of Verification Number (24.5kb).
Anyone who lives, works or studies in Bolsover District - including under 18's - can organise or sign a petition and submit it to us. Under the new rules, issues which attract a petition of 700 signatures or more could be debated by the Council.

We will treat something as a petition if it is identified as being a petition, or if it seems to us that it is intended to be a petition.
We have also launched an e-petition facility that will allow you to create or sign up to petitions on-line. The e-petition must follow the same guidelines outlined above and will be dealt with in the same way.
