We welcome petitions and recognise that they are an important way for you to let us know about your concerns. We will acknowledge each petition submitted to us within 10 working days of receiving it. We will also let you know what we plan to do with it.

The Fareham Borough Council Petition Scheme enables those who live, work or study in the Borough to raise a Petition. The handling of this falls under our public task legal requirement for processing personal data. Petitions are received either electronically via our online ePetition scheme, or in paper form and this privacy notice outlines how we will handle your personal data. The personal information you provide will be processed solely for the purposes of considering it as part of the Petition Scheme. It is usual that the Council will contact only the Lead Petitioner, however in the event we do need to contact other named individuals, your personal information may be used for this purpose. When signing an epetition, your personal details are visible within the details of that Petition page and remain so until the close of the Petition. If you sign a petition and later wish to have your personal details removed due to privacy reasons, a written request should be made to the Head of Democratic Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All information, including personal data submitted, relating to a petition is retained by the Council for 6 years from the date of resolution.
