Borough Insight


As this month sees another Brexit deadline, we thought it opportune to revisit the subject.Brexit

We are working actively with the Surrey Local Resilience Forum to ensure that our services and the borough is prepared for various Brexit scenarios.

Businesses and self-employed
If you trade any goods or services with the EU you’ll need to get ready for Brexit.

Surrey Chamber of Commerce has produced a Business Brexit Checklist which local businesses may find usefull.

Visiting Europe
To visit Europe after Brexit there are things you need to do before you travel. These include:

  • check your passport
  • get travel insurance which covers your healthcare
  • check you have the right driving documents
  • organise pet travel - you need to contact your vet at least four months before you go

EU citizens living in the UK
The UK government has reached an agreement with the EU that will protect the rights of EU citizens and their family members living in the UK. These agreements mean that most citizens from the EU (plus Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland) will need to apply to stay in the UK. They can then continue living their lives here as they do now.
