Notice of Verification Number

Registered electors in Pendle can petition us to hold a referendum on whether we should change to a different form of governance.

A petition like this needs to be signed by at least 5 per cent of the local government electors in the borough.

We publish what this figure is each year, as at 15 February. For 2017, the figure is 3264.
