Brexit - what you need to know

Government information and guidance on Brexit

The UK is due to leave the European Union (EU) at 11pm on 29 March 2019.

At the moment the type of exit – whether through a negotiated withdrawal agreement or a no deal exit – has not been decided.

Craven District Council is working with partners to ensure that the impact of the exit on our residents and businesses is minimised.

Guidance and advice

To help you to find out more about Brexit (the popular term for the process of the UK leaving the EU) the UK Government has provided some general information, guidance for EU citizens and their families who reside in the UK, and advice for businesses on how Brexit may affect them and any EU-born employees.

The guidance is regularly updated as more information becomes available.

General information

For EU citizens and voluntary and community sectors

  • Guidance for EU citizens living in the UK
  • Local elections on May 2nd, 2019 - The Government has said that EU nationals will be able to vote and stand as candidates in local elections on May 2nd, 2019.
