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.
Talks between the Government and the opposition to try to find a way forward are continuing. If the two sides do not come to an agreement the Prime Minister has said she will put a number of options on a way forward to Parliament and make the votes binding.

We’re working on local and regional planning for leaving the EU. We’re part of the South Yorkshire Local Resilience Forum (LRF), a multi-agency partnership made up of representatives from local public services, including the emergency services, local authorities, the NHS, the Environment Agency and others.
