The petitions process allows members of the public to have direct influence on the political process and to raise concerns that are important to them.

Members of the public can submit petitions on the following:

  • Issues relating to the Council's responsibilities
  • Issues which affect the borough of Trafford or its communities, as long as the Council is a position to exercise some degree of influence
  • Anything relating to an improvement in the economic, social or environmental well-being of the borough to which any of the Council's partners could contribute.

The Council will respond to all the petitions it receives. We will be as flexible as we can when handling your petition so that it is considered quickly and in the most appropriate way.
