How is the Council dealing with Brexit

The Council has been dealing with Brexit in the following ways:

  • We continue to review our business continuity plans to take account of any Brexit impacts, to ensure the continuity of essential services.
  • We continue to work with our multi-agency Resilience Partners at local, regional and national levels to monitor the changing situation and assess any risks and plan mitigation.
  • We are working closely with the Highland Council Recovery Board and the Brexit Working Group.

The Highland Council is a Category One Responder under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 which places certain obligations upon it in partnership with other organisations. The Highland Council also has a number of statutory duties and these can be found at:
