Guidelines for Petitions to Monash City Council

Council has introduced guidelines and a template for petitions.

The introduction of a petition template and guidelines will not only refine the purpose of a petition within Council processes but also encourage concerned residents and community groups to raise their concerns with the aim of increasing participation and discussion on Council's programs, policies and strategies, to ensure an effective communication channel with our stakeholders is maintained.

Anyone can organise a petition and request it be 'tabled' (formally received) at a meeting of Council.

Petitions must be submitted to and tabled by a councillor. See our list of councillors and contact details here: Councillors.
