Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

A Bill requiring councils in England and Wales to provide local residents with a facility to lodge electronic petitions, and to respond to such petitions, is set to be passed into law after moving to what is likely to become its final Parliamentary stage last week.

Under the Local democracy, economic development and construction Bill, councils will be obliged to provide an e-petition facility and publish schemes for both electronic and traditional petitions, to acknowledge any petition to its organiser, and to offer a response, all of which should be published online.

Local authorities must also consider holding a debate for any petition which requests it.
