Council stance on Brexit

On Tuesday 11 September 2018, Richmond Council voted in favour of a motion to support the growing campaign for a #People's Vote on the future Brexit deal.

Protecting our residents

At the Full Council meeting, Cllr Richard Pyne, Councillor for North Richmond, proposed a motion that voices the Council’s concern over the country leaving the EU and agrees that the British people should have a say on the terms negotiated.

However, at the same time be reassured, that the Council is also acting to prepare itself for the impact of the UK leaving the EU, so that we minimise any disruption to key Council services. We’re working with other London councils and the Government in preparing for Brexit to make sure the transition is as smooth as possible.

We believe diversity is one of the borough's greatest strengths and wants to protect the rights of all its residents, including EU citizens.  If you're one of the 13,680 EU citizens living in Richmond, we want to support you to continue to live, work and feel welcome in the borough.
