Our Brexit Committee
Since the referendum, we have been considering the likely impacts of Brexit and have been making preparations for it.
In 2018, we established a Brexit Committee to focus on issues surrounding the UK leaving the European Union. You can find out more about its functions and access committee minutes and agendas on our Brexit Committee section.
We have been considering how Brexit will potentially affect delivery of the council’s critical services and putting in place contingency measures to deal with potential impacts.
We also continue to work closely with partner agencies to prepare for Brexit.
