Brexit Information

The UK and Scottish Governments have published advice and guidance to help individual citizens and businesses prepare for the process of leaving the European Union (EU).

North Ayrshire Council have developed plans to help our citizens through the process.

View the council's Risk and Action Plan (PDF, 384kb) for details of the preparations we have in place in the event of a no-deal Brexit. 

We are also supporting our citizens to prepare for the EU Settlement Scheme and complete the ID verification process.
