Preparing for Brexit

We don’t yet know the exact impact that a ‘deal’ or a ‘no deal’ Brexit will have on residents, businesses and the wider community, but the council has been making plans to prepare for a ‘worst case’ scenario to ensure the continued delivery of key services.

The Welsh Government has been clear since the EU referendum result that a disorderly ‘no deal’ Brexit would be disastrous for Wales. We believe this could potentially result in significant disruption to some aspects of day-to-day life in the county borough. 

At this stage, there are no immediate actions people need to take to prepare for a ‘no deal’ outcome in terms of our own daily lives, but it is vital that everyone is aware of the potential impacts and are informed as and when circumstances change. 

This webpage will be updated on a regular basis as our preparations evolve and we will share information from other public sector organisations. We will also use all our other council owned channels to keep the community informed.
