Elector Petitions

This consultation page enables the community to request online petitions for presentation to the Council

The City invites electors to produce electronic petitions for Council consideration.

A petition can come from any elector or group of electors who want Council to take action such as changing a policy, local law or a decision.

Petitions can request Council to take action for a certain purpose or for the benefit of particular persons. The subject of a petition must be a matter on which the Council has the power to act.

Please consider whether starting a petition is the best approach for you.

  •  Petition request to council: 

    "Residents that live in the area enclosed by Olga Street, Albany Highway and the Canning River in Maddington, have for the last five decades only had access to the lovely pathways along the Canning River via the Burslem Drive bridge. Residents that have recently purchased their properties were promised ' river views and 'river access' by the developer, which  is not the case. 

    Over time Burslem Drive has become extremely busy and unsafe. The elderly residents of Arcadia Waters Retirement Complex, and the young families that live near Prosperity Street have to drive to nearby parks, even though John Okey Davies Park is a stones throw away. When walking dogs along Burslem Drive they become skittish with the traffic. It would behove the City of Gosnells to find more ways of connecting the residents of this part of Maddington to the beautiful surrounding nature and to enhance their health by allowing easy access and safe walking options."

    A petition needs to be representative of the community in relation to the request of the Council. The number of signatures will appear more representative of public feeling if it is signed by as many people as possible.

     Petition request to council: 

    "To consider the installation of an All Abilities Play Facility to replace the current playground facilities located at Forest Crescent Reserve, Thornlie (Forest Lakes). We also ask that you consider the provision for BBQ facilities along with a drinking water source for those who use the facility. This facility would enable residents from surrounding areas to be able to congregate at this recreational community hub and be able to meet with other members of the community who they would otherwise not have interaction with."

     Petition request to council: 

    "The original park was provided by the Developer of Lumen Rise Estate, with the intention that a large community park would be constructed as part of stage 2. This development hasn't commenced, and won't for some time. The residents would like the City to install the following items:

    • Shade sails over the seating areas for families to use
    • Upgraded playground equipment including climbing frame and slides (currently two swings are the only equipment)
    • Repainting of the kids hopscotch games on the pavement
    • Removal of mulch from play areas and upgrade to rubber soft fall (the mulch is currently blown by the strong winds experienced in the area)"

     Petition request to council: 

    "Having a half court at the Maddington Skate Park would cater to the other kids that want to be out with their mates, but not using the skate park. There is plenty of grassed area in the middle of the park, so the court could fit, leaving some for the people using the BBQs and playground. Having a court there would encourage more families to come down to use the area.

    At the moment when kids are at the park and not using the skate park, they become bored and restless and are more likely to take part in anti-social behaviours."
