Breakdown by Ward/Area of Petition Signatures

S Waters made this Freedom of Information request to Bristol City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Bristol City Council, Att: Head of Legal Services

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I request that you supply me with the following information regarding two e-petitions under the control of Bristol City Council.

'Bristol wants a new stadium not a "village green"' (web link http://epetitions.bristol.gov.uk/epetiti... )

'In Support of Ashton Vale Village Green' (web link http://epetitions.bristol.gov.uk/epetiti... )

The breakdown of the number of 'electronic' (non-paper) signatures as at date of receipt of this request as follows:

Number of signatures with valid addresses in Bedminster ward of Bristol City Council

Number of signatures with valid addresses in Southville ward of BCC

Number of signatures with valid addresses from other BCC wards south of the river Avon

Number of signatures with valid addresses in BCC wards north of the river Avon

Number of signatures with valid addresses in North Somerset LA

Number of signatures with valid addresses in South Gloucestershire LA

Number of signatures with valid addresses in Bath and North East Somerset LA

Number of signatures with UK addresses outside of the West of England

Number of signatures with addresses outside of the UK

Number of signatures on e-petition discounted as invalid (for example incomplete or invalid name or no address provided)

I believe this request does not interfere with an individual's right to privacy, as I am not requesting personal details. I also believe this request is wholly in the public interest, as Councillors have referred to these petitions and the numbers therein on at least one occasion in Council Meetings.

I am requesting details of both petitions in the interests of impartiality.

Yours faithfully,

S Waters
