Advice from the Information Commissioner

The names and signatures of those who signed a petition will be regarded as personal information. While the minutes of council meetings are publicly available, only the subject and summary information of any petition tabled will be recorded in a report. Therefore, that part of a petition containing private information may not be provided upon a simple request and would be subject to FOI assessment.
