Information to support residents and businesses in preparation for the United Kingdom exiting the EU, more commonly known as 'Brexit'.
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.
The Government is proposing to leave the European Union (EU) on 31st October 2019, whether a deal is reached with the EU or not. While efforts to reach an agreement with the EU continue through September and October, preparations are being made for a no-deal exit. The council continues to work on EU exit preparations with key partners and respond to any indicators of any local impact of Brexit and forward plan.
Planning for the EU exit in Doncaster
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.
Our LRF multi-agency Brexit planning group has assessed potential future risks for South Yorkshire from a No Deal Brexit based on the range of potential impacts as listed on the GOV.UK website (https://www.gov.uk/brexit).
Based on our risk assessment, we have refreshed some of our existing multi-agency contingency plans, and we have sought out additional information to support us in our role. This summary document constitutes the publicly available information on South Yorkshire LRF’s multi-agency Brexit planning and preparedness.
