Local petitions - Agenda Lille
Since the resolution adopted on 5 February 2021 by the city council, the citizens of Lille, Hellemmes and Lomme have the possibility to add a subject within the city's competences to the agenda of the city council by using local petitions.
Two months to collect 13.000 signatures?
The problem? Initially set at 20%, you only have two months to convince 10% of the electorate (i.e. 13,000 voters) to sign the petition on the city's website. Even for key proposals such as the permanent pedestrianisation of the Grand'Place, this number of signatures is not achievable.
Agenda Lille - the mailing list of 15,000 voters
Instead, let's create a mailing list of at least 15,000 registered voters in Lille, Lomme and Hellemmes. Once we reach this level, we will have the capacity to sign and put local petitions on the agenda of the city council.
Our opinions and proposals
Although these topics are often too complex in their presentation and contributions are seldomly taken into account, we believe it is important to express point of views, make alternative suggestions, propose ideas and critize when necessary.
Here are our contributions:
Cité administrative - plant a few trees or cover the highway?
The city and metropole are holding a preliminary concertation on the improvements of the sourroundings of the new cite administrative. We want to know why covering the highway is not included. Read more…
Saint-Sauveur - how to breathe with only one lung?

The MEL is currently organising a public consultation on its plans for the new tramway network running until April 20th. Let's participate!
Big concertation on the Avenue Peuple Belge
The city is asking to decide on the future of the Avenue Peuple Belge - to be converted into a canal, forest or articial water surface. Here is our opinion
There are ten citizen councils in Lille - one in each quartier of the city. While we would prefer these councils to be composed of volunteer citizens randomly selected and given much more competences on the level of the quartier, we have to make do with their current version.
