Online petitions (ePetitions)
An e-Petition is a petition which collects signatures online. This allows petitions to be made available to a potentially greater audience than a traditional paper based petition. Anyone who lives, works or studies within Bury can sign a petition.
You can sign an existing petition by accessing any of the active e-Petitions listed below or submit a new petition using the link:
We will use your wording, so please try to make it as clear and concise as you can.
E-Petitions are an important part of Bury Council's ongoing commitment to listening to and acting on the views of the public. If you submit an online petition, you will get more people signing if you tell people about it.
Please note that the "number of signatures" is updated every few days.
Disclaimer: This Council accepts no liability for the petitions on these web pages. The views expressed in the petitions do not necessarily reflect those of the providers.

ePET051 - To suspend the consultation process until an independent review has taken place of Bury's Housing needs
The 20 year Housing requirement for the Metropolitan Borough of Bury as specified in the draft GMSF is wrong based on inaccurate population forecasts. If these figures are correct it would mean the largest local population increase since 1881.
We the people of Bury call upon Bury MBC to suspend their involvement in the Spatial Framework process until they have instructed independent experts to assess the housing need for our borough and that this process be supervised by a cross party committee of councillors.
Closed: 13 February 2017.
