E-petitions are offered to the public in Northants

People in Northamptonshire are being offered the chance to create and submit petitions online to the county council.

The petitions for Northamptonshire County Council have no lower limit for submission, so all will be submitted to full council.

However 2.5% of the total resident population will need to sign for the issue to be debated.

Councillor David Mackintosh, cabinet member for communications and external relations, welcomed the scheme.

"This is a great way for residents of the county to stay engaged with the county council's You Choose campaign," he said.
