EU transition and the borough council

Where to find EU transition (Brexit) information if you're a resident or business

EU transition and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020.

For an overview of what has changed and what remains the same, please visit the GOV.UK - Summary: The UK's new relationship with the EU.

New rules apply to things like travel and doing business with Europe. Use the Brexit checker to get a personalised list of actions for you, your business and your family.

You can also sign up for email alerts which include information and changes at GOV.UK alerts.

Businesses are also encouraged to visit information provided by New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership.

Applications to the EU Settlement Scheme for most people closed on 30 June 2021. However, members of the public can still apply if either:

  • they have a later deadline – for example, they are joining a family member in the UK who was living in the UK by 31 December 2020
  • they have ‘reasonable grounds’ for being unable to apply by 30 June 2021 – for example they are suffering from an illness or the victim of domestic abuse
