Information on the UK's exit from the European Union (Brexit) and how it may affect people and businesses in Scotland:

We are working to identify the potential impacts on the area and to support the best outcome for Highland.

How is the Council preparing for Brexit

The Council has been preparing for Brexit in the following ways:

  • We will continue our business continuity plans to take account of any potential impact Brexit may have, to ensure the continuity of essential services.
  • We will 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:
