Information to support residents and businesses during the negotiation period between the United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union (EU).
Process and Planning
The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020 at 11 pm UK time. The transition (or implementation) period in the Withdrawal Agreement (WA) was conceived as a bridging period while the UK and the EU negotiate a new relationship. It will last until 31 December 2020 unless both sides agree to an extension to complete negotiations.
Alongside the WA in October 2019, the UK and the EU agreed a Political Declaration (PD) setting out the framework for the future relationship between the two. The Government’s vision for the UK’s future relationship with the EU was further set out in the Prime Minister’s speech in Greenwich on 3 February 2020 and his Written Ministerial Statement on the same day.
Also on 3 February the European Commission set out its recommendation for a European Council decision authorising the opening of negotiations for a new partnership with the UK.
