Residents and businesses in Fenland are being advised to keep up to date with the latest government information on Brexit.
Fenland District Council is signposting key information from government to Fenland citizens and businesses to ensure everyone is prepared for when the UK leaves the EU on October 31 2019.
The council website has the latest published information to ensure how leaving the EU may also affect businesses. They are also working in partnership with local community hubs to support the local community.
Cllr Chris Boden, leader of the council, said: "We are keen to ensure that all our residents and businesses have access to get the latest information they need on Brexit.
"We have collated important information on our website for our residents and local business to ensure they are prepared for Brexit. We are also publicising the latest government messages on our social media sites."
If you have a business you may need to prepare for change. The gov.uk website: www.gov.uk/brexit has prepared information on how leaving the EU may affect your business and what you can do.
Government has specific information for separate industries; such as exporters, hauliers, agri-food and is inviting industry to events across the country. www.gov.uk/brexit has further information.
