Update from the meetings held on 31 July and 3 September 2019
Recent meetings of the Brexit Local Government Delivery Board have taken place frequently as the government continues to prepare for the UK’s exit from the EU on 31 October.
These meetings, both of which were chaired by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP, were attended by representatives from sector organisations across England including the Local Government Association, County Councils Network, District Councils’ Network and London Councils, Core Cities and Key Cities.
Representatives from the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA), the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) and the Northern Ireland Local Government Association (NILGA) were also invited to attend.
Board members heard departmental updates from MHCLG and DExEU representatives at both meetings while ministers from DfT, DfE and the Home Office attended the September meeting to discuss progress regarding traffic management, upcoming communications to local authorities and schools and an update on the EU Settlement Scheme respectively.
