Exiting the EU

Information to support residents and businesses in preparation for the United Kingdom exiting the EU, more commonly known as 'Brexit'.

Brexit process and planning

The Withdrawal Agreement

The United Kingdom and the European Union have agreed a “flexible extension” of the Brexit process until 31st October 2019. The extension can be terminated if a withdrawal deal is agreed.

The Government is proposing to leave the European Union (EU) on 31st October 2019, whether a deal is reached with the EU or not.   While efforts to reach an agreement with the EU continue through September and October, preparations are being made for a no-deal exit.    The council continues to work on EU exit preparations with key partners and respond to any indicators of any local impact of Brexit and forward plan.
