On 23 June 2016 the UK voted to leave the European Union and on 29 March 2017 the UK triggered Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon commencing the process of withdrawal from the EU, commonly referred to as Brexit.

Council preparations

The Council is taking early action to recognise the local implications of Brexit and we are taking steps to reduce negative impacts and take advantage of emerging opportunities.

A Brexit Working Group has been established to coordinate Brexit preparations and the Council has been working with a number of partners including suppliers, businesses and other local authorities to ensure good strategic planning which aims to ensure the best outcomes for Buckinghamshire.

This page will be regularly updated as major developments become apparent.

Information for residents

Government has published official guidance for EU citizens (Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Lietuvių, Português, Română)

Unfortunately, as a local authority, we are unable to provide immigration advice. However, you can search 'find an immigration adviser' on GOV.UK for information on how to find an immigration adviser in your local area.


More information is available from the Department for Exiting the European Union website.
