Rejected petition Hold a referendum on building the M4 Relief Road.

The Welsh Government has decided that the M4 Relief Road should not be built.

However, the issue of major importance to people of Newport, and the people of the city should be allowed to have their say via referendum.

Back in 2021, Newport City Council supported a motion which included the possibility of a referendum being had on the issue.

It is now time for that referendum to come about.

Why was this petition rejected?

There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue, or if the Petitions Committee has considered one in the last year.

Another petition calling for this already exists and stopped collecting signatures recently:

Hold a public poll on whether to build the M4 Relief Road, then implement the result immediately

The Petitions Committee will be considering this petition soon.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
