Petitions calling for a referendum on governance arrangements

Our governance arrangements are currently based on the 'leader and cabinet’ model introduced in 2000. Regulations provide for a referendum to be held on changes to governance arrangements if we receive a petition containing the signatures of at least 5% of the electorate (currently 33,739).

Further information on the leader and cabinet model can be found through the Modern gov website.
