Notice of verification number

Under the Local Government Act 2000 The Local Authorities (Referendums) (Petitions) (England) Regulations 2011, we are required to publish how many signatures of registered voters are required on a petition, which would require the council to hold a referendum on changing its model of governance. This figure is known as the verification number.
