Get ready for Brexit

The UK is due to leave the European Union. As a district council, we have no power over the negotiations with the EU about the terms of any exit deal, or if there is no deal.

We have been working for some time to identify the ways Brexit could potentially affect our district; both in terms of the work of the council and the possible impact on residents, visitors and businesses.
