Local government arrangements for dealing with Brexit within West Sussex are shared between the County Council and the District and Borough Councils, based upon our statutory roles and responsibilities.
Alongside our district and boroughs, we are taking all reasonable steps, in line with relevant guidance and messaging coming from the Government and its agencies, to prepare your county.
The Local Enterprise Partnership also has a role in relation to local businesses.
Preparing our services
Residents and businesses can be reassured that we have done, and are doing, everything within our power to plan for contingencies and to ensure continuity of our services and this is regularly reviewed as new guidance is issued from the Government.
Managing potential risks to our services
Our Executive Team, led by our Chief Executive, is managing any potential risks to service provision. Where potential risks exist, mitigations are being considered or put in place as appropriate.
Discussions and planning exercises have taken place around a wide variety of subjects and potential scenarios.
Updates on our preparations will be posted on these pages. Residents and businesses are reminded that they should always refer to the Government’s official UK Transition Hub for the very latest national updates.
To find out if your business, family, and personal circumstances will be affected by Brexit, you can answer a few questions on the Government’s Transition Checker tool to get a personalised list of actions.
