Important changes

In response to feedback we have added our petitions system to the Richmond Web Account.

You must now login to or register for a Richmond Account if you wish to submit or sign a petition online.

Submitting a petition

There is no need to obtain a licence or certificate to collect signatures for a petition.

We can accept petitions submitted online or on paper. Petitions will be handled according to our Petitions Scheme.

Petitions must include:

  • Details and reasoning in support of your petition
  • A statement of what action the petitioners wish the council to take
  • The contact details (including address) of the person organising the petition. This person will be contacted in response to the petition.
  • The name, address and the signature of any person supporting the petition. An address can be a place of residence, work or study, but this must be located in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

You should treat all those you invite to support your petition with courtesy and respect regardless of whether or not they choose to sign.

Paper petitions

You can submit paper based petitions to our Democratic Services department, or via your local ward Councillor.

Online petitions

We have added our petitions system to the Richmond Web Account. You must now login to or register for a Richmond Account if you wish to submit a new online petition.

It is important that you read our publication rules and guidance before submitting a petition on our website.
