    Making a petition how do I go about it please?

    I've decided to start up a petition which I'm pretty sure that 99% of my neighbours will sign,how do I go about this please? are there any templates that I could adjust and print off?

    Also when full who is best to give the petition into? I'm going to petition for cctv cameras and better street lighting around the car parking areas,would it be best going to the council? or the MP?

    thankyou very much for any help in advance

    yes pls

    We, the residents of ___________________ request that you investigate the
    feasibility of implementing (select one):
    [] CCTV b) Better street lighting
    [] Other (Please Specify): ____________________________________________________
    PLEASE PRINT CLEARLY AND LEGIBLY

    You fill in the reasons why you are draughting this petition...

    When you you have collected signatures ring your local council and book in to present the peition at there next full council meeting. make a point of going to present it, not just sending it in.,, Always keep a copy yourself...
    Send a copy to your local MP....
    Contact your local papers telling them you will be presenting a petition into full council...
    sometimes publicity throws a little weight....

    Personally i would contact your local Councillor first and as him or her to liase with there Operational Service department over the streetlighting, then find out who your Community Safety Officer is within the Council and ask your councillor to act on the residents behalf regarding the cctv...

    If you have incidents reported to police of vandalism remember to add dates of these in all correspondents and in your petition..
    Good luck....

    omg! i must talk to much:oops:

    I learnt something about petitions:
    If you don't get a few of the most *important* people get lots of signatures (remember a single signature written down is better than a hundred signatures promised)

    get people to sign individualy not of behalf of someone else ie i'll sign it and i will sign for my husband, daughter etc etc as i know they will want me to. It looks much better and supported by more people if they individualy sign. Also try and get as much publicity as possible ie write to the local paper letters page, local councillor etc.....................oh good luck

    If you want your petition to suceed, ALWAYS offer to help towards the outcome yourself, whether it be you and your 'petitioners' paying towards your cause, or offering help to implement it. There is nothing more annoying than people 'demanding' things without actually making an effort to change things to help themselves.
