Regulation 4 of the Local Authorities (Referendums) (Petitions) (England) Regulations 2011 provides for the holding of a referendum on whether the Council should change to a different form of governance or an Elected Mayor. For this to happen at least 5% of local government electors within the District must sign a petition.
Each year in February the Council publishes the minimum number of signatures which would be needed to support a valid petition requiring the Council to hold a referendum. (Local Government Act 2000)
The number in the notice below will apply to any petition submitted to the Council from now until the new figure is published in February 2023.
