The government is indicating that the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will leave the EU on 31 January 2020. Across the UK, planning has been undertaken to ensure we are fully prepared for Brexit.
Wiltshire Council has been planning to minimise the impact of any disruption to our residents and businesses; and has been sharing any advice, guidance and information that is available. Our planning has involved working with partners to ensure we can keep Wiltshire safe and moving; and prevent and minimise any impact of disruption on our local communities and environment.
Preparing for a 'Deal' or 'No Deal'
Regardless of the political events and developments, it is important that the council and its staff continue to provide services as usual, so we will continue to prepare for both a 'Deal' and 'No Deal' eventuality. We are following government advice around planning and are continuing to work with them and partners, including through the Wiltshire Local Resilience Forum, to ensure the county is prepared.
Businesses and individuals should also consider what action they should take.
