Petitions are documents (whether electronic or physical) that contain details of issues that are important to communities of Neath Port Talbot, signed by local electors who are in support of the proposed action.

The Council has published a Petitions scheme (as per the Local Government & Elections (Wales) Act 2021)

Before submitting a petition, residents should:

Contact the Council to see whether an ordinary service request would resolve the issue.

Contact a relevant ward Councillor(s) to see whether they can help.


An e-Petition is a petition which collects signatures online. This allows petitions and supporting information to be made available to a potentially much wider audience than a traditional paper based petition.

Anyone who lives, works or studies in the area can submit or sign an e-Petition.

E-Petitions are part of the Council’s ongoing commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public.

Submitting an e-Petition

On the ePetitions homepage, select the ‘Submit a new ePetition’ option. To submit an ePetition you will need to be a registered user. Registration is a simple process that just requires you to provide us with your name, address, postcode & valid email address in case we need to contact you about the ePetition. To do this you will need to select 'Register as a new user' via the 'submit a new ePetition' link.

Once registered, you will be prompted to enter a title which the system will automatically check against existing ePetitions to allow you to see if a similar one has been considered recently. You will then need to fill in the online form. This will be submitted to the Democratic Services team who may contact you to discuss your ePetition before it goes live. It may take up to 10 days for your ePetition to be published online.

An e-Petition can relate to any issue on which the Council has powers or duties or on which it has shared delivery responsibilities through a partnership arrangement.
